Data Preparation > Database > NSF > Extract Awards
Extracts a table containing one row per award from an NSF database.
The output table will include the following:
- investigators: The number of investigators on the award.
Load an NSF file into the tool, then create a database from it using the NSF database loader.
For a quick analysis of a small dataset you may wish to merge together investigator entities with identical names. For a scientifically sound analysis of a larger dataset, you can specify your own merging orders then perform them.
