The Data Analysis Workshop

By: Gururajan Govindan, Shubhangi Hora, Konstantin Palagachev

Overview of this book

Businesses today operate online and generate data almost continuously. While not all data in its raw form may seem useful, if processed and analyzed correctly, it can provide you with valuable hidden insights. The Data Analysis Workshop will help you learn how to discover these hidden patterns in your data, to analyze them, and leverage the results to help transform your business. The book begins by taking you through the use case of a bike rental shop. You'll be shown how to correlate data, plot histograms, and analyze temporal features. As you progress, you’ll learn how to plot data for a hydraulic system using the Seaborn and Matplotlib libraries, and explore a variety of use cases that show you how to join and merge databases, prepare data for analysis, and handle imbalanced data. By the end of the book, you'll have learned different data analysis techniques, including hypothesis testing, correlation, and null-value imputation, and will have become a confident data analyst.

Heatmaps are a type of visualization that display correlations between different features of a dataset. Correlations can be positive or negative, and strong or weak.

The features are set as rows and columns, and the cells are color-coded based on their correlation value. Features with a high positive number are strongly positively correlated.

Exercise 10.05: Checking for Correlations between Features

In this exercise, you will plot a heatmap to observe whether there are any correlations between features of the new_air DataFrame:

  1. Import numpy as np:
    import numpy as np
  2. Create a variable called corr that will store the correlations between the features of new_air. Calculate these correlations by applying the .corr() function on new_air:
    corr = new_air.corr()
  3. Mask the zero values using the zeros_like() function, with corr as the correlations to check, and set dtype as np.bool:
    mask = np.zeros_like(corr, dtype=np.bool)
