Data Wrangling in R

"Data Wrangling" is the process of preparing data for analysis.

This course will cover importing data, cleaning data, creating and transforming variables, extracting and merging data, and reshaping data. It is a hands on class with time devoted to practicing using these tools to ready data for analysis.

This workshop assumes you have a working knowledge of the RStudio interface: writing, running, and saving scripts, as well as viewing data in the global environment. If you need a refresher, take our "Introduction to R using Rstudio" workshop.
