I started a Coursera course this week called Getting and cleaning data. I was looking at some data from the CSO and realised that I needed to clean it up. The course is good, but quite difficult. It assumes you have not forgotten everything you learned in the previous course, R Programming.
Mid way through week 2 (I am playing a bit of catchup) I stumbled across this package
px is the format that the CSO releases its 'raw' data in. This package puts that into a data frame which is more amenable to analysis. I reckon there has to be something lurking within the CSO dataset which is one of my main motivations for getting up to speed on R.
Nothing to declare yet, but hopefully I will find something interesting soon :)
