Data wrangling with R

Introducing a series of posts on data wrangling with R.

I will be writing the odd post on assembling and manipulating various data sets in R. These are mostly data sets that I use in teaching, and I hope the posts will be of use to other instructors looking for interesting data for teaching and/or people learning R and wanting examples of working with data.

Inspired by a blog post by David Robinson, I decided to teach the tidyverse to my own first year maths & stats undergrads, and the following posts will all be tidyverse-based. To learn about the tidyverse I started out with this webinar at RStudio; I really like the book R for Data Science, as well as David Robinson’s DataCamp course.
