Learning objectives
To enable the student to work with the statistical software R. R is a free (based on open source principles) statistical software package, which is supported by a very large international research community. The program can be used to do all types of statistical analyses. Due to the open principles and the large supporting research community the latest statistical techniques are almost always available in R long before the commercial programs (SAS, SPSS, Stata).

We will explain basic use of R; from data management through descriptive statistics and standard analysis to downloading and using packages with the latest statistical techniques from the web. Roughly half of the course will be spent doing exercises in the computer-rooms or using your own laptop. Main focus will be on the use of R, but there will also be time for discussing more statistical aspects of the methods. The whole course will be structured around a few real life cases.

You must bring your own laptop with R and R Studio installed.

PhD-students. Knowledge of basic statistics at a level corresponding to ”Basic statistics for health researchers” will be advantageous.
