I love maps. It’s not just a nerdy thing. Map are very helpful visualization tools for a lot of questions from business. Of course, there are number of standard BI tools which can produce maps as well, like Tableau. My experience is that the coded ones offer more customization options. Especially when it comes to destinations/cities/villages, which are not big (or well-known) or when the data is not "very" clean (e.g. same city written in a different way), if you have to preprocess data at…Continue

I’m unsure if it is a common misconception, but I know I used to believe that the only thing needed to present findings from statistical analysis was a P-value less than the chosen alpha; that if there was evidence to reject the null hypothesis it could be concluded that a meaningful discovery had been made. What I learned during the Mod 3 project is that statistical significance is not indicative of a substantive significance in what is being measured or compared. In order to determine the…Continue

The importance of completeness of linear regressions is an often-discussed issue. By leaving out relevant variables the coefficients might be inconsistent.
But why on earth?!
Assuming a linear complete model of the form:
z = a + bx + cy + ε.
