Andrea Ruggeri (Oxford), “Data Visualisation” (April 20th, 2017)

Andrea is making a presentation on data visualisation. Here’s the abstract:

Why let them read your data if they can see them? Visualising data is a powerful strategy for creating reports and conveying clear messages to readers, but traditional social sciences training does not cover data visualisation. This workshop will introduce participants to the use of graphs to report and show description, variation and correlations of data. We will use graphical representation of effects, simulations and quantities of interests in order to report statistical results in a more straightforward way. As well as covering the basics of how to draw an effective figure or graph, we will also work on drawing maps and combining graphs. We will use R and Stata as software. At the end of the workshop participants will have a wide choice of graphs for use in their future research.
