(Now aren't you glad I didn't say)

The Problem:

  • Documentation is usually left to a researcher.
  • Who has higher priority research to work on.
  • Many think that documentation needs to be extensive.
  • So documentation isn't always done.

What does great documentation look like?

What does can great documentation look like?

This isn't about
open science

  • Well documented and preserved datasets and code are first useful to you and your team.
  • You should be able to reuse your own data as part of future work.
  • Documentation is almost always necessary for reuse -- even for Future You.
  • Enough information,
  • about the project, methods, and materials
  • such that the information is maintainable over time,
  • in an accessible format,
  • and valuable for those who need it.

Mimimum viable documentation

tl;dr

  • Something is better than nothing
  • It doesn't need to be a dissertation
  • Seriously, just write something
  • Seriously.

What are the basic pieces of documentation?

Codebook

  • "What do the data values mean?"
  • Describes what, if any, coded values mean within the data file.

 

Data dictionary

  • "What does this data file contain?"
  • Describes the individual questions or measurements contained within a data file.

readme.txt

  • May contain a mix of both, and other important contextual info.

Sometimes it can do all the things

ICPSR

Variable name: Human name

Descriptive information

Descriptive statistics and codes

http://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR36498.v1

Sometimes it does a little less, but you can still get along

 http://doi.org/10.3886/E17507V2

Sometimes they are machine readable

Column name Corresponding survey question Codes
Q1 Please select the option that best describes your status. 1="I am a US citizen or permanent resident"; 2= "I am an international student"
Q2 Please select your age 1="<18"; 2="18-25"; 3="26-30"; 4="31-35"; 5="36-40"; 6="41-45"; 7="45+"
Q3 What is your gender? 1="Male"; 2="Female", 3="Other", 4="I do not wish to respond"

 http://doi.org/10.3886/E43668V1

Or sometimes there's nothing...

http://www.doi.org/¯\_(ツ)_/¯

What are the core elements?

  • A little bit of data profiling
  • A little bit of data cleaning
  • A little bit of human narrative

Perfect > Something > Nothing

Easy to improve something...

Hard to make something from nothing...

  • Automate what you can
  • Focus on the elements only you can answer
  • Move on with your life

AutoDocish

Automate what you can

  • Data dictionaries report the headers
  • Codebooks report unique values
  • Descriptive statistics are...statistics

 

These are things a computer can do.

What's left for the human?

  • Context
  • Methods
  • Pesky human sentences

Let's take a look

So you've got a CSV...

$ python data_profile.py source output missing_code

1

2

3

1. The data source, either folder or file

2. Folder name for the profile files to be written

3. Missing code for the data, presumes empty string if not provided.

Outputs

  • Inside the output folder:
    • One profile per data file
    • A single JSON file with all profile data

out/

json

.md

$ python data_profile.py vagrants.csv vagrants/ [missing]
Generating profile for: vagrants.csv
vagrants/ already exists. Will OVERWRITE.
Profiles written into vagrants/

Example data from:

Crymble, Adam et al.. (2015). Vagrant Lives: 14,789 Vagrants Processed by Middlesex County, 1777-1786 (version 1.1). Zenodo. 10.5281/zenodo.31026

Single file usage

$ python data_profile.py fakedata fakes ''

So what's going on in the code?

for f in files:
    if f.endswith('.csv'):
        finfo = basic_stats(f)
        headers = get_headers(f)
        csvinfo = review_csv(f, mode = 'rU', missing = missingcode)
        all_file_data[f] = ({'file_metadata': finfo, \
                         'csv_basic': csvinfo['csv_basic'], \
                         'columns': csvinfo['cols']})
        make_md(f, all_file_data[f], headers, target)

For each file

if it is a CSV

get some info on it

organize that info and write profile file

BYOPF

"bring your own profiling functions"

for f in files:
    if f.endswith('¯\_(ツ)_/¯'):
        finfo = ຈلຈ(f)
        headers = ಠДಠ(f)
        csvinfo = ಥДಥ(f, mode = 'rU', missing = missingcode)
        all_file_data[f] = ({'file_metadata': finfo, \
                         'csv_basic': csvinfo['csv_basic'], \
                         'columns': csvinfo['cols']})
        make_md(f, all_file_data[f], headers, target)

(valid python3 code ^_^)

pip not required

  • Uses all standard packages in 2.7
import os
from os.path import isfile, join
import csv
import datetime
import glob
import sys
import json

Future directions

Just a proof of concept

  • Easier to start with something than nothing goes for code as well
  • CSVs are common and easy, so the best of low hanging fruit
  • Needs more work for data type, more granular control, etc.

Features I'd like to add:

  • Turn this into a web tool that can be locally launched
  • Better auto detection for data types
  • More statistics
  • Prettier outputs
