At the end of the course, you will complete a project to apply various concepts in the course to a Data Science problem involving a real-life inspired scenario and demonstrate an understanding of the foundational statistical thinking and reasoning. The focus is on developing a clear understanding of the different
approaches for different data types, developing an intuitive understanding, making appropriate assessments of the proposed methods, using Python to analyze our data, and interpreting the output accurately.
This course is suitable for a variety of professionals and students intending to start their journey in data and statistics-driven roles such as Data Scientists, Data Analysts, Business Analysts, Statisticians, and Researchers. It does not require any computer science or statistics background. We strongly recommend taking the Python for Data Science course before starting this course to get familiar with the Python programming language, Jupyter notebooks, and libraries. An optional refresher on Python is also provided.
After completing this course, a learner will be able to:
✔Calculate and apply measures of central tendency and measures of dispersion to grouped and ungrouped data.
✔Summarize, present, and visualize data in a way that is clear, concise, and provides a practical insight for non-statisticians needing the results.
✔Identify appropriate hypothesis tests to use for common data sets.
✔Conduct hypothesis tests, correlation tests, and regression analysis.
✔Demonstrate proficiency in statistical analysis using Python and Jupyter Notebooks.
