    Google Refine: A Useful Tool for Empirical Research

    Sponsored Ad:
    If you've never seen it before, Google Refine is a free tool for beating messy data into a clean format. It has a nice set of features for diagnosing inconsistencies in your data and then applying a transformation to correct things. Google Refine also runs on your local machine, so no need to worry about uploading your data elsewhere. Most importantly, it's easy to work with.

    There are some videos at the link above explaining more. Have a look for yourself!

    I'll add my thanks to the list as well. This just saved me hours (days?) on the project I'm working on right now. Great find!
