Learning and applying new statistical techniques can often be a daunting experience.

“Easy Statistics” is designed to provide you with a compact, and easy to understand, course that focuses on the basic principles of statistical methodology.

This course will teach you the many different methods to visualize data

Visualizing and graphing data is a vital in modern data analytics. Whether you are a data scientist, student of quantitative methods or a business user, having an understanding of how to visualise data is an important aspect in getting data information across to other stakeholders. Many different ways of visualising data have been devised and some are better than other. However, each method has advantages and disadvantages and having a solid understanding of what visualization might be best suited is key to delivering a concise and sharp “data message”.

Often, it takes years of experience to accumulate knowledge of the different graphs and plots. In these videos, I will outline some of the most important data visualization methods and explain, without any equations or complex statistics, what are the advantages and disadvantages of each technique.
