Data Management in R: A Guide for Social Scientists¶
Elff, Martin. 2020. Data Management with R: A Guide for Social Scientists. London: SAGE Publications.
This page provides material to accompany my recent book Data Management in R: A Guide for Social Scientists, which is being published by Sage Publications. The material is organised into different pages each corresponding to a chapter of the book:
The material is organised in in the same manner as the chapters and sections of the book. The code examples in each section are contained in a single webpage, where each code example is followed by the output it would produce in the R console or in a graphics window. The code examples for each section are collected into an R script and an RMarkdown file, both of which are available for download from the respective webpage.
Code examples are accompanied by Jupyter notebooks
from which the code example pages were created.1 Links to interactive versions of
the notebooks are also provided, marked by a Jupyterhub icon, i.e.
There are interactive versions each, one that runs on
https://dataman-r-tmp.elff.eu/ in a docker container2 for a maximum time
of 5 minutes and another one that runs on
in a docker container for up to an hour, but requires sign in with an ORCID id.3
The sources of the R-scripts and notebooks (as well as R-markdown files), are
also available in the GitHub repository
https://github.com/melff/dataman-r. A ZIP-file with the contents of the
repository can be downloaded from
https://github.com/melff/dataman-r/archive/main.zip. The Jupyter
notebooks come with NO WARRANTY whatsoever. They are provided for educational
and illustrative purposes only. Do not use them for production work.
