About This Video

  • Learn the basics of R graphs and how to make them
  • Customize your graphs according to your specific needs without using overcomplicated techniques/packages
  • Step-by-step instructions to create a wide range of professional-looking graphs

Who This Video Is For

The R software is freely available, yet drawing statistical graphs is one of its greatest strengths, eclipsing most commercial packages. The R Graph Essentials course is suitable for non-statistical and non-programmer viewers who are familiar with the basics of R and want to learn the best techniques and code to create graphics in R in the best way possible.

What You Will Learn

  • Learn the essentials to create a basic R plot and then customize it to make it look professional
  • Plot categorical variables when one or more variables need to be visualized
  • Visually depict one or more continuous variables and compare them
  • Generate bivariate scatter plots, sub-group them based on conditions, and add regression and other statistical summaries in the plot

In Detail

R is a powerful tool for performing statistical analyses and drawing publication-quality graphics. This tool is ideal for organizing and graphing huge datasets. It also provides various techniques for plotting a variety of simple and more complex statistical graphs.

R Graph Essentials is a beginner’s course to learning about R graphics. This course will provide you with both a solid grounding in the so-called “base” graphics package in R as well as introducing elements from more sophisticated packages, such as lattice and ggplot2.

R Graph Essentials explains the basic functionality of R graphs in detail in order to familiarize you with how they work. The course starts with very basic R plot functions, first helping you to gain control of this function, then moving on towards various advanced plotting functions.

Different types of graphs are used to visualize different types of variables. The R Graph Essentials video course classifies these graphs and teaches them separately. This course is a compilation of tips and tricks related to the most efficient ways of drawing various types of graphs using basic R plotting functionality. Additionally, bivariate plots, time series, and high dimensional plots are also covered in this course. By the end of this course, you will be in a position to create your own ETL processes within a short amount of time.

The course offers a practical and interactive way to learn about R graphics, equipping you with the tools to draw informative statistical plots to effectively visualize your data.
