Course Information

In these two morning sessions, we will discuss the Access to Healthy Assets & Hazards (AHAH) dataset from the CDRC and the methods used to create them, multi-dimensional indices. Multi-dimensional indices are used to create many different data sets, including the Index of Multiple Deprivation. We will discuss the AHAH dataset, how and why it was created, and what it can be used for. We will also discuss and show you how to use the multi-dimensional indices method to create your own index, using AHAH as an example.

The training will consist of the 2 x 3 hour sessions which will run over Zoom. These will consist of a small section of presentations, some seminar style discussions and 1-to-1 supported practical work. There will also be a short video you will be required to watch before the course. We will work with R and RStudio. If you have not used R before, or would like a refresher, a short R as a GIS course will be available for you to complete in your own time before the course. We may ask participants to complete a short quiz to confirm the required skill level in R, and to then complete the refresher course before attending the session if needed.

Learning Outcomes

After the course participants will:

  • understand what the Access to Healthy Assets & Hazards dataset is, and what it can and cannot be used for
  • understand how a multi-dimensional index is created
  • be able to apply the multi-dimensional index method to their own data
  • have example code to create a multi-dimensional index in R
