What is R?
R is an advanced language that performs various complex statistical computations and calculations. It is widely used by data scientists and leaders in multiple fields, including public health. R interprets the data in a graphical form, making it easy to interpret and understand.
In public health, we must continue to follow, analyze and interpret the data. In addition, it’s important to visualize the data in a digestible and understandable manner. This introductory R webinar will help you do just that.
