This is the first session of the Statistical Analysis in R (2022 Fall pilot) series, developed through collaboration with UVA Health’s Health Sciences Library. In this session learners will review fundamental tidyverse code so everyone starts on the same page being able to conditionally summarize and visualize a dataset. Learners will then explore the foundational concepts of linear regression. Learners will become proficient in conducting, interpreting, and visualizing results of single variable linear regression models.
