Creating a dataset
This article is part of the Definitive Guide to Uploading and Preparing Data
Creating a dataset is an important first step in working with Crunch. Part of this includes considered planning about the optimal data format and data transmission.
The web app
- The easiest way to upload or transfer your data is via the web app.
- Note: getting the right type of data is an important consideration (SPSS files, despite being prolific, are not the optimum workflow). You can save a lot of time using one of the direct survey importers or building your own custom exporter (from your survey collection platform).
- You can also upload data via R, see How to log in and access your dataset with R. See also the Upload and Multiple Datasets section of the crunch R package documentation
- Not available - you would just upload via the web app (see above)
