We practiced with ASCII, .TSV, .SAV, and .DTA files, all available from ICPSR, a data archive with a rich collection of social science data sets.

We’re taking a break from  R Open Labs this week, but we’ll be back on February 17 at 10 am in the DSSC.

Share your thoughts and suggestions with us here, and we’ll see you next week!
