Data Science for Social Justice

In this course you will learn how to analyze issues of injustice and structural inequality by applying methods in R. Through the ethical practice of data science, you will use data to illuminate social justice issues wherever you live and work. This four-week course will build on your current R skills, empowering you to use data to work for social change. You will look at data through the lens of social justice and gain an understanding of what characteristics of society are correlated with economic mobility, as well as how inequities are embodied in systems of education, housing, and health. You will analyze and communicate data using accurate, unbiased, and well-designed visualizations, including bar graphs, boxplots, and histograms. Image: Rikki's Refuge
