Organizing Data with Spreadsheets

Good data organization is the foundation of any research project. Typically, we organize data in spreadsheets in ways that we as humans want to work with the data. However, computers require data to be structured in particular ways in order to use tools that make computation and analysis more efficient.

In this workshop, participants will learn good data entry and formatting practices, basic quality control, how to manipulate data in spreadsheets, and how to export data from spreadsheets (e.g., MS Excel and Google Sheets). This workshop will not cover data analysis with spreadsheets but will focus on the important initial “data wrangling” stage that enables you to do proper analysis later.  

This workshop is part of our Dealing with Data Series.

Thursday, October 14 at 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
