Online Short-Seminar: Tidy Data is Good Data

Online Short-Seminar: Tidy Data is Good Data Online

Turn messy data into tidy data! Much of your time will be spent in this ‘data wrangling’ stage. It’s not the most fun, but it’s necessary and food data organization is the foundation of data analysis. Learn the rules for a 'tidy dataset' in order to clean and prepare your data with examples and tools.

This virtual session will teach you how think about data organization and some practices for more effective data wrangling. As a note, we will not discuss analysis or visualization.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe best practices for data entry and formatting in spreadsheets
  • Recognize and resolve common spreadsheet formatting problems
  • Apply best practices to transform messy data into tidy data 
  • Find additional training and get help
