Data Analysis is a crucial part of any project. This is where we explore our data, where we understand the patterns in data. It is carried out through the below steps:

  1. Finding Measures of Central Tendency
  2. Finding Measures of Variability or Dispersion
  3. Checking the Distribution Types
  4. Performing Graphical Visualizations

There is a detailed section for Data analysis in the Statistics track. It is recommended to go through those articles first and understand how we can perform data analysis.

There can be cases where your Data is not cleaned, it contains some junk values or it has some inconsistencies, then there is a need to perform the Data Cleaning part first and once data is cleaned, then you can proceed with your Data analysis part.
