Data Track: Cleaning Dirty Data

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Are your data ready for precision journalism?

Data doesn’t come in clean. Misspellings, duplicates, missing items, macros, hidden fields or records, and spaces can result in confusing, erroneous results or even make the analysis impossible. We’ll use real data sets to teach you how to track problems, how to clean dirty data, and how to format it for a confident analysis.

To participate in this class, you must be familiar with spreadsheets and have some experience with SQL. Help with downloading in the Data Pub Thursday 4.30 p.m.
