This bookmarklet allows you to pull data sets contained on many Web pages in various forms directly into StatCrunch for analysis.
To get started, save the link below to your bookmarks or favorites folder.
- In Chrome or Safari, grab the link above and drag it to your bookmarks bar.
- In Internet Explorer, right-click the link above and choose the Add to Favorites option.
- In Firefox, right-click the link above and choose the Bookmark This Link option.
The bookmarklet then submits the contents of these items to StatCrunch for analysis.
When you find data tables on a Web page, choose the StatCrunchThis option under the Favorites/Bookmarks menu of your browser.
The Be number greedy
option can be used with either the single page or multiple page options discussed above. If this option is turned on, StatCrunchThis will try to force the
content of table cells into a numeric value if at all possible. For example, a cell containing the text value 5.33g will be translated into 5.33 when this option is turned on.
This program works pretty well for most web pages, but always double check the output to make sure it matches the original data. Be very careful with pages that contain
tables with very complicated header information.
Some examples of Web pages with data sets that play nicely with StatCrunchThis are listed below. Make sure you sign in to StatCrunch before using StatCrunchThis with the pages below.
