Using the drop argument with factors in count and group_by to include missing data (CC240)

You want to know about the drop argument for count and group_by, if you have categories that you want to be sure to include in your analysis, but that might be missing.

He’ll also show how to convert a factor into a continuous variable for plotting on the x-axis. All this will be done in RStudio with a lot of help from the tidyverse
