# R Resources

### Fall 2020 R Workshops

For the Fall 2020 semester, R workshops will be held virtually. MPRC affiliates interested in learning R are invited to register for the R for Population Research Course, a self paced, no-credit class available on Canvas. To register, please fill out *the registration form*.

### Previous R Workshop Materials

R scripts and sample data from past MPRC workshops can be found at the MPRC github repository.

Researchers working with R for the first time may be particularly interested in the Intro to R workshop materials and Quick tips document. Materials covering advanced topics in R such as data visualization and data creation will also periodically be posted.

### External Resources for Learning R

- UCLA offers an excellent introduction to R workshop.
- The University of Wisconsin also offers an introduction to R for researchers.
- R for Data Science is a useful resource for working in R and learning more about packages in the tidyverse.

### Useful R Packages

R is very powerful as-is. However R's functionality can be greatly enhanced via the use of packages. See the list of useful R packages for helpful packages to add onto R. When using these packages, standard disclaimers apply. Not all packages may be compatible with each other and modification and maintenance of packages may be done by fellow R users.
