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.

Activity 5.01: Performing K-means Clustering for Administrative Duration versus Bounce Rate and Administrative Duration versus Exit Rate

  1. Select the Administrative Duration and Bounce Rate columns. Assign the column to a variable called x:
    x = df.iloc[:, [1, 6]].values
  2. Initialize the k-means algorithm:
    wcss = []
    for i in range(1, 11):
        km = KMeans(n_clusters = i, init = 'k-means++', \
                    max_iter = 300, n_init = 10, random_state = 0, \
                    algorithm = 'elkan', tol = 0.001)
  3. For the different values of K, compute the Kmeans inertia and store it in a variable called wcss:
        labels = km.labels_
