Data Wrangling Workshop
To fully support the Research Committee’s objective of making Europe become a data research powerhouse, since 2018, it has organised highly successful data workshops at the EEA annual congresses.
Topics have included running do files from the command line, reading andwriting various data formats, handling data quality (missing values, text data), transforming data using collapse, reshape and merge, and easy-to-read, modular coding with expressive variable names, commands and for loops.
In light of these workshops, the EEA has become a supporting member of The Carpentries, a non-profit organisation providing researchers high-quality, domain-specific training covering the full lifecycle of data-driven research.
The date of the next data workshop will be released soon.
