The "Data Cleansing Challenge" provides a real-world scenario for you to practice cleaning and organizing data. You will use your SAS knowledge, documentation and problem solving skills to complete the challenge.
In this challenge you will be working with earthquake data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). You have two tasks. The first is to clean the data. That one is pretty obvious, I mean, it's in the title. Your second task is to take the clean data set and separate the valid and invalid observations. Lastly, a nice bonus to top it off!
Now I know you're thinking, what skill level should I be to attempt this challenge? That's a great question. This challenge can be attempted by all users!
To attempt this challenge, start by watching the introductory video. It will give you the background information on the data, desired outcomes, resources and a challenge overview.
