R Statistical Language for Air Pollution Epidemiology course

In collaboration with the University of Queensland’s School of Population Health, CAR will be running a course on the R statistical language aimed at those with an interest in air pollution epidemiology. The course will run over two days on Thursday 24th and Friday 25th July at the Herston Campus of the University of Queensland. Thursday is aimed at beginners new to, or with little experience in R, and will cover installation, packages, loading, saving and manipulating data, simple linear regression, and producing graphics for publication. Friday is more detailed and will cover time series, case-crossover and Bayesian analyses as applied to air pollution epidemiology. Presenters are Dr Peter Baker from the Queensland Clinical Trials and Biostatistics Centre, and CAR’s Dr Yuming Guo and Dr Sam Clifford.

Details are available in the course flyer.
