2 Cleaning Up Data After the data is loaded up into R, the next step is to look at data for errors. In the real world, data is usually messy; we cannot expect our data analysis to yield clear results if we use it directly. In this section we will look at how to identify and clean up the errors in the data arising due to data entry errors and missing values. As an example, we use a fictional dataset containing responses of a group of individuals to questions about their health and physical characteristics.
The added structure of ordinal variables plays a key role for many statistical analyses. 2 Cleaning Up Data 27 > data$smoke  Never Regul Occas Never Never Never ... Levels: Heavy Never Occas Regul In R, a factor can be converted into an ordinal variable using the ordered() function. This function does not know the right order to apply, so it picks them alphabetically. To enforce the order that we have in mind, we can pass the levels vector as follows. > data$smoke = ordered(data$smoke, levels=c(’Never’,’Occas’,’Regul’,’Heavy’))  Never Regul Occas Never Never Never ...
17 Bar plot of total payrolls of the two leagues split by division Another advantage of qplot() is that we do not need to use par() to display variants of a visualization in a grid.

We create bar plots for the total payroll per division for the two leagues using the formula . 19 shows the output. There is no need for a legend because all division and league combinations are already labeled.
