The video_customers.xlsx dataset contains a sample with several information about the US customers of a video streaming company. Names, states, ages and subscription dates, among others, are listed in this file.

After combining different filters that work like "if" conditions, you will be able to perform cleansing operation on the customers category that you want to target specifically. In this example you want to output a file listing the customers in the 30-55 age range and from the five US states with the most registered customers, while getting rid of unusable data.

Retrieve the video_customers.xlsx file from the Downloads tab in the left panel of this page.
