Remember, data cleanup can be a complex process, and the specific steps can vary depending on the nature of your data and the purpose of your analysis:
Define the scope and identify the datasets needing cleaning and the specific issues to address.
Backup data before starting the cleanup process.
Standardize and normalize data entries to ensure consistency in data. Remove duplicates to avoid skewing data and leading to inaccurate analysis. Tag invalid and out-of-the-norm data. Handle missing values depending on the nature of data and analysis; this could involve imputation, deletion, or leaving them as is.
Validate accuracy and cross-check data samples with reliable sources.
Check for outliers that can significantly impact reporting. Keep a record of all the changes made during the cleanup process. Verify the final dataset once the cleanup process is complete.
