Course Description

Websites that have a lot of data (e.g. product reviews and prices) may not be suitable for data analysis. Many data providers and authorities publish their data in tables format. If you do not see a download link on these sites, don't be discouraged. This course will show you how to quickly extract data from any website using R. It will also teach you how to use CSS and HTML through hands-on activities. This will make data harvesting more efficient and less error-prone.
