We establish understanding of things in terms of Data or it will be better to say in terms of Big Data, the utilization of things, matters, issues, inventions, surroundings, maps and much more throughout our everyday life cycle, all of which has a certain data type to get input, process and output for us.

You could take a look at some traditional stat anslyses, like Cluster Analysis, and for a visual representation, try Multidimensional Scaling. These would save you a lot of time. There is no reason to reinvent the wheel, but Big Data seems intent upon ignoring the vast historical knowkedge regarding statistics, psychometrics, and Measurement Theory. Believe me- if you have a question on how to proceed with an analysis, multivariate statistics is likely to have several accaeptable answers.…Continue
