Reanalyse the data behind one of the most important discoveries of modern medicine: handwashing.
In 1847, the Hungarian physician Ignaz Semmelweis makes a breakthough discovery: He discovers handwashing. Contaminated hands was a major cause of childbed fever and by enforcing handwashing at his hospital he saved hundreds of lives.
In this R project we will reanalyze the medical data Semmelweis collected.
This project assumes you can manipulate data frames using
dplyr and make
simple plots using
ggplot2. You can learn these skills in the course
