Connecting R/RMarkdown & Microsoft Word Using StatTag

Thursday, September 26th at Mudd Library
4:30 PM to 6:30 PM
Dinner Provided

Speaker: Leah Welty, Ph.D. Professor of Preventive Medicine (Biostatistics) and Psychiatry and Behavior Science and lead developer of StatTag at Northwestern

Want to automatically update your Word document with R outputs? Learn StatTag! This event will teach participants how to use StatTag (free, open source software) to create a bi-directional connection between R/RMarkdown and a Word document so that all files can be edited separately, but statistical content – values, tables, figures, etc., can be updated automatically in Word.
