Data Analysis – R Part 2: Data Manipulation in R using dplyr and tidyr
R is a programming language and environment for statistical computing and graphics. This workshop will introduce you to the dplyr package which makes tabular data manipulations easier by using a set of functions to extract and summarize insights from your data. The tidyr package works well with tidyr to quickly convert between different data formats (long vs wide) for graphing and analysis.
