Amusement Park injuries

This week's data is from and the Safer Parks database.

A lot of free text this week, some inconsistent NAs (n/a, N/A) and dates (ymd, dmy). A good chance to do some data cleaning and then take a look at frequency, type of injury, and analyze free text.

Additional data can be found at SaferParks Database
