Exploring Your First Data Set with R
Learn how to explore new data sets in R by applying a structured and established data exploration blueprint.
What you'll learn
Do you want to learn how data exploration can be implemented in R? Without data exploration, the whole data analysis process gets inefficient and slow, but follow a good data exploration process and you'll be guided to valuable insights. In this course, Exploring Your First Data Set with R, you will learn how new datasets are explored and analyzed in a quick and efficient way. First, you will learn the methods outlined, following a logical succession, which are applicable in most standard data frames. Then, you will discover how the process is divided into 3 steps: summary statistics, distribution checks, and relation analysis. These steps build on each other and you will find out which variables are worth further analysis and where variable dependencies exist. Finally, you will gain the knowledge of the ground work for machine learning and final data presentation.
When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills to properly structure and conduct data exploration in R.
