Understand data analysis concepts to make accurate decisions based on data using Python programming and Jupyter Notebook

Key Features

Find out how to use Python code to extract insights from data using real-world examples
Work with structured data and free text sources to answer questions and add value using data
Perform data analysis from scratch with the help of clear explanations for cleaning, transforming, and visualizing data

Book Description
Data literacy is the ability to read, analyze, work with, and argue using data. Data analysis is the process of cleaning and modeling your data to discover useful information. This book combines these two concepts by sharing proven techniques and hands-on examples so that you can learn how to communicate effectively using data.
After introducing you to the basics of data analysis using Jupyter Notebook and Python, the book will take you through the fundamentals of data. Packed with practical examples, this guide will teach you how to clean, wrangle, analyze, and visualize data to gain useful insights, and you'll discover how to answer questions using data with easy-to-follow steps.
Later chapters teach you about storytelling with data using charts, such as histograms and scatter plots. As you advance, you'll understand how to work with unstructured data using natural language processing (NLP) techniques to perform sentiment analysis. All the knowledge you gain will help you discover key patterns and trends in data using real-world examples. In addition to this, you will learn how to handle data of varying complexity to perform efficient data analysis using modern Python libraries.
By the end of this book, you'll have gained the practical skills you need to analyze data with confidence.
