Workshop: Useful R 4 Stata Users Brown Bag

October 13, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT
CCPR Seminar Room, 4240 Public Affairs Building
Los Angeles, CA 90095 United States

"R 4 Stata Users"

This workshop is a brown bag forum. Participants are encouraged to bring in tangible questions they wish to explore using R. To serve as a background road map, the instructor will provide an abbreviated sample of what he thinks are the most useful features of R. However, the goal is to have participants ask questions that the collective group can figure out using R. Any R question is fair game, for example: questions about fundamental R concepts or even questions about how to run Stata-equivalent R commands. Participants will be provided access to Rstudio, so please bring a laptop.

This CCPR brown-bag is intended to be an open forum that complements the 3 great resources below. Please see the resources, especially the first one.

1) 10 minute demo: interactive call–response slideshow of R basics
http://tryr.codeschool.com/

2) Worked out examples from a UCLA IDRE workshop on R concepts
https://stats.idre.ucla.edu/r/seminars/intro/

3) R 4 Data Science e-book

Workshop: Bayesian Concepts for Data Analysis

April 12, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT
4240 Public Affairs Bldg

"Workshop: Bayesian Concepts for Data Analysis"

Instructor: Michael Tzen

Content:
This 1 hour workshop will provide a sampling of introductory concepts for bayesian analysis. We will use Bayes Rule (and its implications) to think about data analysis. When used as a framework to model phenomenon, the analyst gets to work with 4 useful distributions: the prior, posterior, prior predictive, & posterior predictive. We will predict what clothing size 2Chainz wears. We'll also look at the Gompertz Rule from demography. In both examples, the bayesian framework allows us to clearly express the estimand, information from data, information from prior knowledge, and the estimator.

This workshop is the first of a two part series. The first workshop is conceptual while the second workshop will focus on software. The date for the second workshop is TBD.
