R software


R is a language and environment for statistical analysis and graphics. R provides a wide variety of statistical and graphical techniques, and is highly extensible. The course “Statistical Practice in Epidemiology with R” is an introduction to R for epidemiologists with the aim of showing how common epidemiological analyses can be carried out in R. The course also covers a selection of more advanced topics showing the power of the R language.

The “Statistical Practice in Epidemiology using R” course has been running since 2002 in Tartu, Estonia and at IARC in 2011 and 2013.

The 2018 course will be held from Thursday 14 June to Wednesday 20 June 2018 at IARC in Lyon, France.
