Book Description

Around 80% of time in data analysis is spent on cleaning and preparing data for analysis. This is, however, and important task, and is a prerequisite to the of the data analysis workflow, including , analysis and . Python and R are considered a popular choice of tool for data analysis, and have packages which can be best used to manipulate different kinds of data, as per your requirement. This book will show you the different data wrangling techniques, and how you can leverage the power of Python and R packages to implement them.

You will start with understanding the data wrangling process and get a solid foundation for working with different types of data. You will work with different and aqquire and parse data from various locations. The book will also show you how to reshape the layout of data and manipulate, summarize, and join data sets. Finally, the book includes a quick primer on accessing and processing data from , conduct data exploration, and store and retrieve data quickly using .

The book will include practical examples on each of the above pointers using simple and real-world datasets for easier understanding. By the end of the book, you will have a thorough understanding of all the data wrangling concepts and how to implement them in the best possible way.
