This course will first cover the topic of manipulating and grouping data so that can you prepare and organize your output. You will then learn how to present this output via visualizations. You will also study important packages such as dplyr, tidyr, readr, data.table, SparkR, and ggplot2, along with how these packages can make data manipulation, visualization, and computation much faster. The course will then show you the crucial difference between a feature manipulation and observation manipulation.

Next, you will study the main two types of data visualization. Data visualization is a term that describes any effort to help people understand the significance of data by placing it in a visual context. It exposes patterns, trends, and correlations that might go undetected in text-based data, and makes these patterns more easily recognizable. Finally, you will learn about the grammar of graphics, the different graphing and charting libraries needed for your visualizations, how to set of colours, and how to organize data in your visualizations.

This R for Data Analysis course will be of great interest to professionals working in the areas of data science and data analysis. It would also be valuable to learners who want to get started with R for statistical computing. By the end of the course, you will have a valuable data analysis tool in your belt, which will make your statistical résumé, and output, much stronger. So why wait? Get started with this course today, and learn a valuable new skill in no time.
