Data Visualization for Social Science

a Workshop

Friday, 3/9/2018, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.   ARCHIVED EVENT

Location: Weiser Hall, room 747

LSA's Computational Social Science (CSS) Initiative is offering a Winter 2018 series of methods workshops designed to provide introductions to important CSS-related models and techniques, especially for social scientists.

The first of the three CSS Methods Workshops Winter Series is:

DATA VISUALIZATION FOR SOCIAL SCIENCE

Taught by Kieran Healy, Duke University Department of Sociology

This workshop is a hands-on introduction to the principles and practice of data visualization, using R and ggplot. We will review some basic principles, discussing how good visualizations are rooted in understanding the way we perceive properties like length, absolute and relative size, and color. We will learn how to make and refine plots using ggplot's "grammar of graphics", a powerful framework for producing high-quality visualizations in a coherent and reproducible way.

Friday, March 9, 9am to 5 pm. Weiser Hall, #747.

Lunch provided. Registration required.
