Description:

Instructor: Christina Maimone, Senior Computational Social Sciences Specialist, Research Computing Services
Do you collect or store data in spreadsheets? Do you work with others who do? Then this workshop is for you. We'll discuss best practices for formatting and organizing data in spreadsheets to avoid errors, make data files ready for import into statistical software, improve consistency, and save your colleagues and your future self headaches and trouble. We'll look at examples of spreadsheets to discuss ways they could create problems for researchers and discover ways to improve them. You may want to bring a laptop, but a computer isn't necessary for this workshop.
