What is data cleaning?
Data cleaning allows you to exclude certain elements of a data set that may otherwise distort the analysis.
The available cleaning options will vary depending on the data source you are uploading but may include the removal of:
Spam and promotions
Duplicates and similar posts
Posts from bots, public figures and organizations
Data cleaning during upload
Upload your data file and select your metadata.
Once processed, you'll see cleaning options. Use the tickboxes to select what you would like to remove and click 'Continue.' The platform will now remove any unwanted data.
Data cleaning after upload
Navigate to the relevant project folder in the Dashboard.
At the top of your project, next to Data Cleaned click on the 'Change' button.
Select the desired cleaning options from the pop-up screen and click 'Okay.'
The results of any existing comparisons that include data sets for which you have changed the cleaning options will automatically be updated.
