# Data EDA Temporary File Creation

Data EDA, Data Cleansing, and Temporary File Creation

We have an R modeling assignment where we need to use the data from a Kaggle competition to produce Time Series Models.  The assignment is broken into two parts.  I would like to submit the first part. The data files can be found on the following web site.

What is needed in the first part:

1. Evaluation of data set(s) using Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA) with:
• Visual Data Evaluations
• Descriptive Statistics
• Statistical Graphs
1. Data cleansing and transformation.  Create a temporary data set as to not corrupt the original data set(s).
• Missing values
• Capping of Outliers
• Creation of Dummy Variables for Categorical Variables
• Creation of the logError, log(Zestimate) and log(SalesPrice)
• Log Transformation of other variables
1. Any regression approaches including Backward Regression Approach to define predictor variables.

If at all possible, if you could avoid R Markdown format it would be appreciated.
