The time spent cleaning is vital since analyzing dirty data can lead you to draw inaccurate conclusions.In this course, you’ll learn how to clean dirty data. Using R, you’ll learn how to identify values that don’t look right and fix dirty data by converting data types, filling in missing values, and using fuzzy string matching. As you learn, you’ll brush up on your skills by working with real-world datasets, including bike-share trips, customer asset portfolios, and restaurant reviews—developing the skills you need to go from raw data to awesome insights as quickly and accurately as possible!
