The Place of No Fibs

Ask me no questions, and I’ll tell you no fibs.

– Oliver Goldsmith, She Stoops to Conquer

Analyzing data is a form of exposing truths.

Data analysis comes in two forms:

  1. Exploratory – this is analyzing data that you currently have and summarizing main characteristics to answer a question.
  2. Predictive – this is analyzing data that you currently have and summarizing main patterns to predict outcomes.

The analysis follows the direction of the question it is looking to solve.

Ask potent questions. Expose potent truths.
