DSS Seminar 07: Data Wrangling in R

The four seminar sessions for the Spring 2019 seminar will cover ways to use `R`

for data cleaning and wrangling. We’ll cover techniques for dealing with messy variable names, removing variables and adding new ones, subsetting observations, and summarizing grouped data using the `R`

packages `dplyr`

and `janitor`

. We’ll discuss:

- Lesson 1 - January 23rd - Working with Existing Variables
- Lesson 2 - February 6th - Creating New Variables
- Lesson 3 - February 20th - Managing Observations
- Lesson 4 - March 6th - Grouping and Summarizing Data

No prior experience with `R`

is necessary - in fact, these seminars are tailored to learners with *no* or *little* experience in `R`

! If you are brand new to `R`

, we strongly encourage you to look through our seminar materials that Introduce R and RStudio and cover RNotebooks, our tool for teaching.
