I’ve heard from several students that they are having trouble pulling together all of the data to complete the exercise, either because of problems with the Google Drive shared spreadsheet or because not all students have yet uploaded their data. Please feel free to use only your 30 property records. If you already have 60 or 90 that’s better – use as much data as you can – but don’t spend loads of time trying to track the additional property records if you’re having a lot of trouble. We will spend time in class tomorrow getting the data better organized.
If you have not done so already, please email your property records (in Excel format) to our Graduate Assistant, Becky at firstname.lastname@example.org
This is an important lesson – getting clean, useful data is often a painful process. I’m reminded of this on a regular basis in my consulting work. Thanks for your patience!
