‘In this course, you will learn how to use the statistical computing and graphics language R to enhance your data analysis and reporting process. You’re going to dive right into dealing with the messy and disparate types of data that journalists regularly encounter. You’ll get an introduction to packages that will help you wrangle data efficiently and effectively. You’ll learn how to create visualizations that will communicate what you’ve discovered in your data with charts and maps. Finally, you’ll learn how to turn your analyses into notebooks that can be shared with others in your newsroom and hopefully eventually published online for reproducibility’.
