Who Are My Peers?

February 10, 2013

This semester I am taking a course on data analysis in R. I had never used R before, so I thought I should give myself a fun little project that I could use to get familiar with the program. I decided to analyze data on the current Yale undergraduate students (classes ‘13, ‘14, ‘15, ‘16). Below are various descriptive graphs I created of the undergrad population. If you are interested in the code I wrote you can find it at the end of the post (suggestions for improvement encouraged!)
