Workshop on R for Financial Data

R is an open statistical software that can be an alternative to commercial packages such as SAS, SPSS and etc. R is a very flexible tool and currently new knowledge of statistics and books come together with R applications. The R language is widely used among statisticians and data miners to develop statistical software for data analysis. Polls, surveys of data miners, and studies of scholarly literature databases show that R's popularity has increased substantially in recent years.  The half-day workshop will cover the data collection, data management, descriptive statistics, inferences and programming with R.

Household Income and Basic Amenities

The Household Income Survey provides statistics relating to household income distribution, and incidence of poverty. The statistics on income is compiled base on the concepts and guidelines from "Canberra Group Handbook on Household Income Statistics, Second Edition (2011)" published by the United Nations and used primarily by government agencies as an input in planning as well as formulating and monitoring national development plans, particularly in the Eleventh Malaysia Plan.  These statistics can also be used by economists, academics, the private sector and individuals for research and analysis.
