RSSIG is an interest group for University of Florida social scientists who use or are learning how to use the R software environment for statistical analysis. RSSIG mainly works through a Canvas website to which UF students or faculty can register.
The group gathers UF faculty and graduate students in the social sciences who can help each other to learn R for social research. The group is based at the UF Department of Sociology and Criminology & Law, but colleagues from any UF department with an interest in the social sciences are welcome.
We aim to facilitate and coordinate R learning for UF social scientists, for example through workshops, courses, and similar events on campus; to distribute information about R learning resources and facilities at UF and beyond; to discuss R resources for social scientists (functions, packages, tutorials, websites, books, etc.); and to foster interaction among UF colleagues who are learning and using R.
