Venue: Woodburn Hall, 200 (SSRC Grand Hall)
In the format of hands-on session, this workshop will introduce participants to the Language Variation Suite (LVS), a user-friendly interactive web application built in R. LVS provides access to advanced statistical methods and visualization techniques, such as mixed-effects modeling, conditional and random tree analyses, cluster analysis. These advanced methods enable researchers to handle imbalanced data, measure individual and group variation, estimate significance, and rank variables according to their significance.
