Fatherhood is one of the big milestones in a man's life. From diapers to driving lessons, becoming a dad is a life-changing event. With Father's Day just around the corner, the best way we know to kick off the celebration is to dive into the data and learn more about fatherhood in the United States. You can also download data from United States Census, National Responsible Fatherhood Clearninghouse and NRF's Annual 2019 Father's Day Spending Survey to perform your own analysis and visualizations.
The Endgame is coming! The massively successful superhero movie franchise is closing out with its biggest film yet, pitting the remaining Avengers against the all-powerful Thanos. But how powerful is Thanos compared to our heroes? Thanks to Kaggle, we have the opportunity to dive into Marvel superhero demographics information and quantitatively measure skills and strengths of all the characters. In this blog, we’ll compare superheroes characters, including gender, alignment and power statistics.
Last week, we dove into the Victoria’s Secret dataset and discovered that they had a huge variety of not only bra types, but also colors, sizes, and materials. Whenever you start working with a new dataset, always remember to explore it first so you have a good idea of the distribution of the data and you may even have new questions. Now that we have a better understanding of Victoria’s Secret’s inventory, we can ask more questions about their pricing strategies, such as:
- What’s the price distribution for each product category?
- Which cup size is cheaper? And which cup size is the most expensive?
- If you want to save money, which color is cheaper?
Victoria’s Secret is one of the best-known brands for lingerie, pajamas, and bathing suits. Thanks to Kaggle, we have the opportunity to dive into their best-selling products and see how their pricing reflects their inventory. In this first part of our series, we’ll explore their inventory and unique products to get a better understanding of the overall dataset. This is always a best practice when you work with your own data - when you invest the time up front to get an overview of your dataset, you’ll better hone your analysis and save a lot of time in the long run.
A picture is worth a thousand words — at least, that’s how the old saying goes. But how many numbers is a picture worth? Perhaps that’s a more interesting question given the amount of charts and graphs created every day. We need to distill all the data available to us through charts and visualizations to convey a clear message. It’s the message the inspires action to change the world — or your organization.
