Sorry for this basic question. I have been trying to understand whether PalmerPenguins dataset comes as a long or wide format. I would appreciate if you could check the following:
As each row corresponds univocally to a given penguin, it is in wide format.
As I haven’t been able to imagine how its long format counterpart would be, I am not sure.
For completeness, is the main AoG tutorial prepared for wide format table ?
It could be made longer by changing
| penguin_id | species | island | bill_length_mm | bill_depth_mm |
| 1 | Adelie | Torgersen | 39.1 | 18.7 |
|penguin_id | species | island | attribute_name | measurement_value |
| 1 | Adelie | Torgersen | bill_length_mm | 39.1 |
| 1 | Adelie | Torgersen | bill_depth_mm | 18.7 |
I change data to make it “tidy” in the sense described at 12 Tidy data | R for Data Science but the penguins already is tidy. I’m not sure if “wide” and “long” are absolutes.
