Use your own dataset or a previously downloaded filtered dataset by uploading a comma-separated value (CSV) file with a column for each variable.
Variables can be one of two types:
Qualitative values that are used to organize or categorize data.
Examples include diagnostic codes, dates, or names of things or people.
Quantitative values that are used as the basis for numerical analyses.
Examples include measurements, prices, or counts of things.
Before uploading your dataset:
- Set the column headings—the first row of data—to the variable names you want to use.
- Save the dataset as a CSV file.
