  • Urban Health Summer Institute - Policy Analysis

    June 22, 2020 through June 26, 2020

    1:30 PM-5:00 PM

    Online

    • Everyone

    This course will provide the landscape of policy analysis in real-world settings using a continuum of data tool approaches. Since policy development and implementation occurs in diverse and fast-paced environments, approaches to studying research and policy questions that keep pace with policymakers will be described. Data approaches from individual case studies to large, publicly available data sets will be reviewed and used. Policy products (e.g., policy briefs, infographics) that resonate with policymakers and constituents will be the key deliverables generated and provide scaffolding for future policy analysis and dissemination.

    Improving the quality of data visualizations can help in communicating results more clearly and transparently to other scientists, stakeholders and the general public. This course will use a workshop format to help students build their own data visualization projects using R, with Urban Health examples. This course will include a general introduction to basic data visualization concepts and best practices to generate static figures. This course will also cover basic concepts regarding interactive data visualization and spatial data. This course will provide all the required code, and some of the code may be useful to apply to your own visualizations with some adjustments. Thus, participants with a stronger R background will be able to create more complex visualizations.
