My first steps in data science
So what’s all this noise I hear about data science. Yes exactly our world is currently termed a data driven world. Today more than how much you have in your bank account it is how much you have in your data bank. Data has accessed and has become a part of our day to day lives. We just cannot do without it.
The world of data may seem foreign and new to you but not to worry we are here to guide you through how to approach it and make the best out of it.
The first thing to note is that data is part of our everyday lives check out our recent article at https://ieum.io/2021/07/06/elementor-15124/
In the world of data one important thing to note is that you must be able to draw useful insights from the data that is made available to you.
The first step is to ask the right questions: what do you want to know about and why?
The second step is to collect your data. This can be primary or secondary data depending on what topic you choose. Depending on your topic sometimes you would need to have a mix of both types of data.
Your next step is to cleanse the data you have collected for analysis. This would help reduce errors and also make it less your data results biased.
After cleansing your data choose the analysis method that best suits the data you want to analyze.
At this point you can analyze your data and you are almost there, after your analysis just create a report on all the insights you have gathered from this data.
