Web Scraping for Text Analysis in R

Tuesday, May 27, 2014 - 10:00am to Wednesday, May 28, 2014 - 5:00pm

Social science researchers are often interested in retrieving data from the internet. Often, this can be accomplished using so-called "web-scraping" techniques. This course introduces the statistical programming language R, then demonstrates techniques for web scraping using R. Finally, tools for analyzing text data in R will be presented.

Workshop runs May 27-28, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Lunch will be provided.
