COVID-19 is a global pandemic that has profoundly affected the way we live and work. The news and social media are filled with tables and graphs. There are many sources of data available for free on the Internet, and researchers often rely on data from the Johns Hopkins GitHub repository.
Join Chuck Huber, Associate Director of Statistical Outreach, as he demonstrates how to download the raw data files from GitHub, combine the data into a single file, process the dates to create time-series data, and create time series for multiple countries. In this webinar, you will also see how you can create basic graphs of the number of cases, the log-count of cases, and the population-adjusted number of cases.
The webinar is free, but you must register to attend. Registrations are limited, so register soon. Register by clicking the desired date of your course above.
