Do you have a dataset you need to clean up? Do you want help learning how to use R to clean data? If so, the SAIG Short Course: Data Manipulation in R is the right course for you! In this hands on and interactive course we will learn to do the following:


• Subset a dataset
• Create new variables 
• Arrange, sort, and rename variables
• Stack datasets
• Merge datasets


Very minimal coding experience is required. It is suggested that you attend the SAIG Short Course: Basics of R before attending this course.

Bring your laptop to the course and please install R and RStudio on your machine. You can download them from the following links:
