EARNConversations 2021 provided a week-long series of virtual discussions that lifted up state and local policy research from across the Network and provided EARN partners with the ideas and resources needed to better advocate for racial, gender, and economic justice.

This was a pivotal moment during which we had an opportunity to make transformative investments in our communities and reforms to the standards and supports that for too long have left many working people struggling to get by. EARNConversations brought together researchers, advocates, and grassroots organizers to strategize how states and localities can act on the lessons of the past year and use an unprecedented supply of resources to build worker power and improve the well-being of working families.

Data Bootcamp: Next Steps in R

October 1 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

This session is for people who may have some experience using data, but have never used R or microdata before.

This session uses R to analyze American Community Survey microdata.  The lesson will build on concepts learned in First steps in R, and attendees who don’t join that session should already have familiarity with concepts learned there.

Learning outcomes include:

1. Writing R scripts using best practices and proper documentation;

2. How to properly set up a project: directory structure and working directories;

3. Reproducible data analysis.
