Applied Statistics in R is an interdisciplinary research group at Ball State University. We come from areas such as linguistics, sociology, math, psychology and business. We typically meet once a month to discuss topics which are directly or indirectly related to our research interests, as well as topics which can help faculty and graduate students further develop their technical skills. Faculty and graduate students are welcome to attend as well as lead discussions on any relevant topic.
