This 12-video course explores implementation of statistical data research algorithms using R to generate random numbers from standard distribution, and visualizations using R to graphically represent the outcome of data research. You will learn to apply statistical algorithms like PDF (probability density function), CDF (cumulative distribution function), binomial distribution, and interval estimation for data research. Learners become able to identify the relevance of discrete versus continuous distribution in simplifying data research. This course then demonstrates how to plot visualizations by using R to graphically predict the outcomes of data research. Next, learn to use interval estimation to derive an estimate for an unknown population parameter, and learn to implement point and interval estimation by using R. Learn data integration techniques to aggregate data from different administrative sources. Finally, you will learn to use Python libraries to create histograms, scatter, and box plot; and use Python to implement missing values and outliers. The concluding exercise involves loading data in R, generating a scatter chart, and deleting points outside the limit of x vector and y vector.
