Associations and Correlations - The Essential Elements


In writing this book my primary aim is to guide the beginner to the essential elements of associations and correlations and avoid the most common pit-falls.

Here, I discuss a holistic method of discovering the story of all the relationships in your data by introducing and using a variety of the most used association and correlation tests (and helping you to choose them correctly). The holistic method is about selecting the most appropriate univariate and multivariate tests and using them together in a single strategic framework to give you confidence that the story you discover is likely to be the true story of your data.

Associations and Correlations - The Essential Elements is a book of 7 chapters, and takes you through:

  1. Data Collection and Cleaning
  2. Data Classification
  3. Introduction to Associations and Correlations
  4. Univariate Statistics
  5. Multivariate Statistics
  6. Visualising Your Relationships
  7. Automating Associations and Correlations

Although this is a book for beginners, written for ease-of-reading, my hope is that more experienced practitioners might also find value.

It is a thorough introduction to the building blocks of discovering and visualising the relationships within your data and I hope you enjoy it!

It says '$10 minimum', so there is no 'free' copy. Please, correct.
