Look inside
In this liveProject, you’ll build your own Python data library that can detect unusual data. This data can affect regression analysis, and so your library will help spot it before it can negatively affect results. You’ll program functions to detect high-leverage points, outliers, and influential observations. Through the analysis of multiple examples, you'll gain a deep understanding of the kind of problems that can arise with real data.
This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.

book resources

When you start your liveProject, you get full access to the following books for 90 days.
