Understanding SQL and R Training Video is offered on fun-mooc.fr by Francois Husson, Professor of statistics at the Applied Mathematics Department in Agrocampus Ouest. Jérôme Pagès,Professor of statistics at the Applied Mathematics Department in Agrocampus Ouest and Magalie Houée-Bigot,Teaching assistant in statistics at the Applied Mathematics Department in Agrocampus Ouest . Exploratory multivariate data analysis is studied and teached in a French-way since a long time in France. This course focuses on four essential and basic methods, those with the largest potential in terms of applications: principal component analysis (PCA) when variables are quantitative, correspondence analysis (CA) and multiple correspondence analysis (MCA) when variables are categorical and clustering.
This course is application-oriented; formalism and mathematics writing have been reduced as much as possible while examples and intuition have been emphasized and the numerous exercises done with FactoMineR (a package of the free R software) will make the participant efficient and reliable face to data analysis.
We hope that with this course, the participant will be fully equipped (theory, examples, software) to confront multivariate real-life data.
