For the assignment we will finalise replicating this paper. The document for the assignment is here and the file with references is here. The data can be found in this the
Assignments/Assignment5/Data/ folder and the
R scripts needed to create the figures in the
Assignments/Assignment5/src/ folder to be downloaded from the download page.
After this session, you should be able to:
