Data Cleaning Tools

We’ve now covered the steps involved in data cleaning. It’s obvious that this is not an easy task. What tools are available to help you? It depends on the data and systems you are using. Here are some tools that you can use to start to understand the basics.

Microsoft Excel

Since its inception in 1985, MS Excel has been a standard part of computing. It is still a very popular data-cleansing tool, regardless of how you feel about it. Excel has many functions that automate data cleaning, including replacing numbers and text with deduping, shaping columns and rows, and combining data from multiple cells. Excel is also easy to use, making it the first choice for data analysts new to the field.

Programming Languages

Data cleaning can often be automated using scripts. Excel has pre-existing functions that can accomplish this. To run specific batch processing tasks (tasks that are performed without the need for user interaction) on large and complex data sets, you will often have to write your own scripts. This can be done using programming languages such as Python, Ruby, SQL or–if your coding skills are really sharp–R. R is more complicated but also more flexible. These scripts can be written by data analysts who are more skilled, but there are many libraries that already exist. Python has many data cleaning libraries, including Pandas and NumPy, that can speed up this process.


Data visualizations are a great way to spot errors in your data. A bar plot, for example, is a great way to visualize unique values. It might also help you spot a category that was labeled in different ways (like the earlier example of Iron’ or Fe). Scatter graphs are also useful in identifying outliers, so you can examine them further and remove them if necessary.

Last Thoughts

  • Data cleaning is the most critical part of data analytics. Data hygiene doesn’t only pertain to data analytics. It’s also a good idea to regularly update and maintain your data. Clean data is an essential tenet in data analytics, and data science as a whole.
    This post reveals that:
  • Data analytics is a hugely important process that requires clean data. Using poor data will result in flawed insights. It is said that garbage in, garbage out.
  • Data cleaning can be time-consuming. This is why it is worth the time. Data analysts can spend 60 to 80% of their time cleaning up data.
  • Data cleaning can be a complicated process. It involves removing outliers, correcting structural errors, standardizing and validating your results. This is not an easy or quick task.

There are many tools available to assist you. You can also find many proprietary software tools.

Northwest Database Services has 34+ years experience with all types of data services, including mail presorts, NCOA, and data deduplication. If your database systems are not returning poor data, it is definitely time for you to consult with a data services specialist. We have experience with large and small data sets. Often, data requires extensive manipulation to remove corrupt data and restore the database to proper functionality. Call us at (360)841-8168 for a consultation and get the process of data cleaning started as soon as possible.

Find Out About Florida

FloridaFlorida is located in the Southeastern United States. It borders the Gulf of Mexico to the west; Alabama to its northwest; Georgia to north; the Bahamas to the North; the Atlantic Ocean and Atlantic Ocean to it; and the Straits of Florida to the South. It is the only state to border both the Gulf of Mexico (and the Atlantic Ocean). Florida covers 65,758 sq. miles (170,310km2) and is 22nd among 50 states. It also has the third-most populous state with more than 21 million people. Tallahassee is the state capital, while Jacksonville is the most populous. With a population close to 6.2 million, Miami is the most populous metropolitan area in Florida. It also ranks ninth in the United States for the ninth-most populous. Other urban conurbations that have more than one million residents include Tampa Bay, Orlando and Jacksonville.


Since at least 14,000 years ago, Florida has been home to several Native American tribes. Juan Ponce de Leon, a Spanish explorer, was the first European to land in Florida. He called the area La Florida because of its lush greenery, and Easter season (Pascua Florida, Spanish). Florida became the first region in the continental U.S. to be settled permanently by Europeans. The oldest continuously inhabited place was the Spanish colony at St. Augustine in 1565. Florida was repeatedly contested in Spain and Great Britain, before it was ceded to America in 1819. It was then admitted as the 27th State on March 3, 1845. Florida was the main location of the Seminole Wars (1816-1858), which were the longest and most comprehensive of all the Indian Wars in U.S. history. On January 10, 1861, the state seceded and became one of seven Confederate States. It was then re-admitted to the Union following the Civil War, June 25, 1868.

Major Cities & Towns

With 6.06 million residents, the Miami metropolitan area is the largest metropolitan area in both the state and the whole southeastern United States. With more than 3.02million people, the Tampa Bay Area is second. The Orlando metropolitan area with more 2.44 million is third. The Jacksonville metropolitan area with more 1.47 million is fourth.


Florida’s climate is somewhat temperated by the fact that it is not far from the ocean. The climate north of Lake Okeechobee is subtropical. However, areas south of the lake, including the Florida Keys, have a true tropical climate. (Koppen : Aw, Am and Af). The average high temperatures in late July are in the low 90s Fahrenheit (32 to 34 degC). The low temperatures in January range from low 40s Fahrenheit (4-7 degrees C) in North Florida to over 60 degrees F (16 degrees C) southward. It is the most warm state in the U.S., with an average daily temperature 70.7 degrees F (21.5 degC).


According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Florida’s population was 21,477.737 as of July 1, 2019. This is a 14.24% increase from the 2010 United States Census. Florida’s population was 18,801,310 at the 2010 census. In the twelve-month ending July 1, 2012, Florida was the seventh fastest growing state in the United States. The center of Florida’s population was found between Fort Meade (now Frostproof) in the 12-month period ending July 1, 2012. Since the 1960 census, the center of the population has been in Polk County for less than 5 km (8 km) to its east and 1 mile (1.6km) to its north. By December 2014, the Florida population had grown to 19.7 million, more than the New York state population. Florida is now the third-most populous state. According to the 2019 Population Estimates Program of U.S. Census Bureau, Florida had 21,477,737 inhabitants or people. Its population grew to 21,538,187 by 2020.


With a $1.2 trillion gross national product (GSP), Florida’s economy is fourth largest in the United States. According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Florida would be the 16th largest economy in the world if it were a sovereign country (2021), ahead of Mexico and Indonesia. The state’s economic growth has been aided by tourism, industry and construction, international banking and biomedical and biological sciences, healthcare research and simulation training, commercial space travel, aerospace and defense and global banking.
