Data Input

It may be surprising, but reading data into the system in the correct format and checking for erroneous or missing entries is often one of the most time consuming parts of the data analysis. This chapter shows how to read data into Python, from text files, Excel files, and from data preprocessed by Matlab. Thus it forms the link between the chapter on Python, and the first chapter on statistical data analysis.
