A script can be broken down into a few layers which we are going to go through in detail, but here’s a general overview.
- Load/install required packages
- Load your data
- Perform data wrangling tasks
- Then what?
- create figures
- run statistics
- create tables
- Save outputs
Figures are saved in your
/images directory, whereas the statistics and tables are saved in
/data for future use. Each section is coded so that I can fold/unfold a given section. This allows me to only focus on the section of code that is important at that given point and time.
