Hi fellow R users (and Qualtrics users),

As many Qualtrics surveys produce really similar output datasets, I created a tutorial with the most common steps to clean and filter data from datasets directly downloaded from Qualtrics.

You will also find some useful codes to handle data such as creating new variables in the dataframe from existing variables with functions and logical operators.

The tutorial is presented in the format of a downloadable R code with  explanations and annotations of each step. You will also find a raw Qualtrics dataset to work with.

This dataset comes from a Qualtrics survey with an experiment format (control and treatment conditions), but the codes can be applicable to non-experimental datasets as well, as many cleaning steps are the same.
