Life is messy. So is your data — especially if multiple people have contributed to the content. Inconsistent data leads to inaccurate analyses, and software programs are often particular about the precise format of your data.
If you need a quick way to assess and clean your data without having to write customized scripts to perform all those tasks, look no further!
