Please only register for this event if you are using the tidyverse. As registration for the R for Absolute Beginners workshop is now full and, as this is a prerequisite to register for this workshop, registration for this event is now limited to those who are already using the tidyverse. Please contact the event organizers if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you!

Please note that previous introductory experience with R, and experience with basic statistical ideas, is required for this workshop.



This 3-day, hands-on workshop, presented by CHI’s Data Science platform, will get you ready to do basic statistical analyses in R. We will discuss correlation, t-tests, odds ratios, chi-squared tests, and linear and logistic regression. More advanced methods may be introduced, including multiple regression and analysis of variance. Previous introductory experience with R (e.g., Using R for Data Wrangling) and at least a familiarity with basic statistical ideas will be assumed (e.g., a course in quantitative research methods or introductory statistics). To register for our “R for Absolute Beginners” workshop, click here.

Sessions will be held from 9am to 12pm (CT) on Monday, November 8th; Wednesday, November 10th, and Friday, November 12th.

Log in information will be sent to workshop registrants prior to the event.


  • Practice performing basic statistical analyses using R.
