Short Course: Visual Storytelling for Political Science: Learning DataViz & Simulation in R

Visual Storytelling for Political Science: Learning DataViz & Simulation in R

Timothy Fraser
Half Day, 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM
Palais des congrés de Montréal, 512G

Political science has been inundated with great tools for simulating and visualizing statistical model results in recent years, but these tools tend to be scattered across many websites. How do your peers make those great visuals you see popping up on Twitter? In this short course, you will learn to code those beautiful visualizations in R, using packages like ggplot2 and Zelig. Using examples from environmental politics, disaster policy, and more, we will learn to apply statistical simulation techniques to common models, and pair them with ribbon, jitter, and violin plots, among others. We will also talk about best practices, color theory, and how you would make your own simulation from scratch if needed. All levels of R background welcome!
