A Quick Intro to R and Democracy Data

I recently hosted a workshop introducing students at Colorado State University to R, the tidyverse, and the V-Dem data set. We had a two hour workshop in which the students got familiar with R Studio, learned the basic functionality of R and the tidyverse, and started examining democracy indicators. It was a fast-paced workshop aimed and giving students some familiarity with coding and sparking interest and maybe even excitement about learning more.

You can check out the code on Github Gist or examine it below. Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions!
