CABE Professional Development: R Workshop 2 with Jens von Bergmann: Adapting your own data to R analysis


The seminar will focus on mixing data sources, including bring in your own data to include in analysis. We will start with an introduction to census data using the {cancensus} package and continue by mixing CANSIM and other external data with census data. We end by walking through an example of using census data to compare grocery store chains by select demographic characteristics in their store location neighbourhoods.

It is recommended that participants download and run a copy of RStudio running with {tidyverse}, {cansim} and {cancensus} packages installed and up to date.

Login instructions will be included with your registration.
