Introduction to Univariate Analysis

Now that you have a clear idea about the process of cleaning a dataset, the next step in Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA) is to learn univariate analysis. It deals with analysing a single column/variable. Let’s hear our expert Rahim, as he explains the concept of univariate analysis.

The major takeaway from the video above is that univariate analysis is nothing new to us; you have performed this step on numerical variables while handling missing values and outliers.

  • Categorical ordered univariate analysis.
  • Statistics on the numerical variable.
