Venue: Foscore Development Center, Nairobi, Kenya

This course is designed for participants who plan to use R for the management, coding, analysis and visualization of qualitative data. The course’s content is spread over seven modules and includes: Basics of Applied Statistical Modelling, Essentials of the R Programming, Statistical Tools, Probability Distributions, Statistical Inference, Relationship between Two Different Quantitative Variables and Multivariate Analysis. The course is entirely hands-on and uses sample data to learn R basics and advanced features.
