Description

Text Analysis: Matching and Linking

How can you join information from two different datasets using names or places that don't match perfectly? How do you identify duplicate records in your data where text fields may have similar, but not identical, values? This workshop will cover strategies for matching and linking short pieces of text, such as names and places. The workshop will use R and functions from the tidyverse set of packages, but the concepts in the workshop will be useful even if you aren't familiar with R.

Please bring your laptop with access to R.
