Whether being used to customize advertising to millions of website visitors or streamline inventory ordering at a small restaurant, data is becoming more integral to success. Too often, we’re not sure how use data to find answers to the questions that will make us more successful in what we do. In this course, you will discover what data is and think about what questions you have that can be answered by the data – even if you’ve never thought about data before. Based on existing data, you will learn to develop a research question, describe the variables and their relationships, calculate basic statistics, and present your results clearly. By the end of the course, you will be able to use powerful data analysis tools – either SAS or Python – to manage and visualize your data, including how to deal with missing data, variable groups, and graphs. Throughout the course, you will share your progress with others to gain valuable feedback, while also learning how your peers use data to answer their own questions.

    They put a lot of effort in, that's for sure - it was just a bit much, for my taste. The videos are overloaded with visuals and sound, ever-changing backgrounds, animated writing... It's almost impossible to focus on the topic at hand.

    This class is ok if you are a beginner. They have decent videos that give good SAS and/or Python programming tips. It is ok to watch and learn, but expect ZERO support if you have any questions. They want you to create a research question, but then leave you hanging when anyone asks questions. The instructor(s) are non existent. It is your typical create & forget courses. Unfortunately, there are not that many courses that help learn/review SAS programming.
