POSTPONED Cluster Analysis
Please note: This training session will now be postponed until further notice.
This Advanced Quantitative Methods Training event has been jointly organised between the WRDTP and the Scottish DTP, and is open to all ESRC funded and non-ESRC funded students across the partner universities. This event forms part of a 3 day series of events – students can attend events individually or attend all 3.
The course covers basic ideas and concepts in cluster analysis including hierarchical and non-hierarchical clustering methods and their application in R. Guided practical will cover the following topics:
- Selection of variables for cluster analysis
- Application (and choice) of different clustering techniques
- Evaluation of a cluster solutions
- Cluster interpretation
- Cluster validation
Participants will develop an understanding of clustering methods and procedures, carrying out analysis in the program R. By the end of the course, they will be able to carry out preliminary analysis to select and transform variables for cluster analysis, choose a clustering method, evaluate and choose cluster solutions, interpret clusters and present cluster analysis results.
Workshop organiser/ leader
All attendees should have a basic familiarity with R Studio.
There are 20 places available at this AQM workshop
