Tidy Data In-Person

Please note - This is an in-person workshop. 

Good data organisation is the foundation of your research project. Most researchers have either store data in spreadsheets or use spreadsheets for data entry. However, there are drawbacks to using spreadsheets and it is important that when using spreadsheets for data entry that we are aware of the pitfalls and implement data quality measures where we can. During this lesson we will look at: 

  • Good data entry practices - formatting data tables in spreadsheets 

  • How to avoid common formatting mistakes 

  • Dates as data - beware! 

  • Basic quality control and data manipulation in spreadsheets 

  • Safely exporting data from spreadsheets
