TidyX 67: Cleaning Messy Data, Part 4 – Viewer Submission

In Part 4 of our Cleaning Messy Data series Ellis Hughes and I are FINALLY shooting an episode in person again!

This week, we received a viewer submission (opened at issue on our GitHub repo) asking for some help in cleaning up UK Covid19 data. The data is downloaded from a government webpage and comes with a number of excel tabs. In this episode we will deal with the weekly tracking data and show how to go from an excel sheet, that reflects an intuitive way to store data if you are a decision-maker trying to look at it each week and gain insight, into a more usable format that a data scientist can work with.
