**R – Discovering Python & R**, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

I noticed that a major grievance of many students enrolled in **MIT**‘s latest **edX** course on **development policy** (Foundations of Development Policy: Advanced Development Economics) was that there wasn’t enough done to get them going with the R assignments. I have posted the R code for the homework (past the deadline, of course) of the first 2 weeks, so that others get a hang of the level of R that might be needed to solve these assignments in the following weeks. I’m willing to help out those needing help getting up to speed with R required for this course. For specific queries, leave your message in the comments section.

A great place to get spend time learning R before taking Foundations of Development Policy (14.74x) would be another **edX** course that’s been getting great reviews recently: Introduction to R Programming

**R Code for Home Work (Week 2)**

I hope this helps!
