Course Overview - Data Analysis with R

  • 0:00 - 0:04
    Visualizations like this one are a core component of exploratory
  • 0:04 - 0:07
    data analysis. We're going to be using the R programming
  • 0:07 - 0:10
    language to create these types of visualizations and to explore
  • 0:10 - 0:12
    data throughout the course. You can read more about the R
  • 0:12 - 0:16
    programming language and how it was developed by clicking on
  • 0:16 - 0:19
    the link in the instructor notes. We'll also learn about RStudio,
  • 0:19 - 0:22
    which is this program. It's a graphical user interface for
  • 0:22 - 0:25
    programming in R. You'll learn all about RStudio in the next
  • 0:25 - 0:29
    lesson, and future lessons will cover visualization and statistical
  • 0:29 - 0:33
    techniques for data exploration. We'll start by examining one variable
  • 0:33 - 0:36
    at a time in a dataset. This will give us
  • 0:36 - 0:39
    an idea of its underlining distribution and what type of
  • 0:39 - 0:42
    values the variable takes on. Eventually our visualizations will
  • 0:42 - 0:45
    become more complex as we look at pairs of variables
  • 0:45 - 0:48
    and multiple variables all at once. At the end of
  • 0:48 - 0:50
    the course you'll have the chance to conduct your own
  • 0:50 - 0:54
    exploratory data analysis. I hope you're getting excited
  • 0:54 - 0:56
    to explore data. See you in the next lesson.
