Statistical Computing allows a custom statistical analysis to be applied to a dataset using programming control structures and logic.  It allows you to solve problems with the widest variety of available tools, to specify the form of the output, and to tackle the hardest analytical challenges.  The R environment is the best overall way to dive into statistical computing.  This workshop will show you all that you need to get started using R, and will lean heavily toward the application of R to the mass appraisal field.

Course Goal: An Introduction to Using R in the Mass Appraisal Field

  • Setting-Up R 
  • Starting R; Working Directories; Workspaces
  • The Basics of R: Operators; Functions; Data Frames; Data I/O; Plots
  • Ratio Studies in R: Important Functions and Methods
  • Modeling in R: Model-Building; Model Output; Model Application
  • Producing Reports with R Output

Each section will begin with teaching R material followed by a time of hands-on learning. The hands-on portion of the workshop will revolve around analyzing a sample data file. Students will be given example R scripts to run with the sample data file. Students will also be given exercises to do at the end of each section.
