Event Details

This session focuses on reshaping data from long format to wide and vice versa. Long format contains multiple categories in a column, like EmployeeStatus = FT or PT. Wide format spread this into multiple columns, like one with FT = TRUE or FALSE, etc. An application to attrition analysis is used to illustrate.

In Spring 2022, Furman University is hosting ThIRsdays, a weekly 30-min forum at 3:30 pm, ET to learn how to automate common IR tasks. Details can be found on the community’s web forum here, including a statement of purpose and schedule through February.

There is no cost or obligation, and no prior experience with scripting is needed.
