“Data Cleaning: Techniques for Producing High-Quality Datasets”

The Office of Interprofessional and Interdisciplinary Education and Research will host a three-session seminar, titled “Data Cleaning: Techniques for Producing High-Quality Datasets,” beginning Wednesday, March 16 at 5:30 p.m. in the Sheila and Eric Samson Pavilion of Health Education Campus (room to be determined).

The seminar will focus on the steps before quantitative data analysis, such as data preparation and data cleaning, ensuring accuracy and analysis replication. Individuals who complete the sessions will be able to ask the appropriate questions to interrogate their data, to think through the steps needed to clean the most common forms of data, and to weigh the ethical issues associated with data cleaning. Specific topics will include data documentation, data preparation, data cleaning, and ethics. 

The seminar assumes a basic level of knowledge regarding data, such as types and properties of variables and running descriptive statistics. Participants are expected to attend all three sessions.

The dates for the sessions are as follows:

  • Wednesday, March 16, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, March 30, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
