1.1 This week’s data
For the next part of the course you’ll need to download a file of data.
I have created a table with all the data necessary for the project and saved it in an Excel file. Excel is a popular application to create, edit and analyse tabular data. You won’t need Excel to complete this course, but many datasets are provided as Excel files.
Open the data file WHO POP TB some.xls . The file is encoded using UTF-8, a character encoding that allows for accented letters. Do not open or edit the file, as you may change how it is encoded, which will lead to errors later on. If you do want to look at its contents, make a copy of the file and look at the copy.
Put the data file in the same folder (or CoCalc project) where you saved your exercise notebook. Done? Great, let’s proceed to loading the data – you’ll learn how to do this in the next section.
