Description

Data Science is an interdisciplinary field combining Statistics, Programming, Machine Learning, and Business Knowledge.

Statistics is the key field in analyzing data to extract insights for business decisions.Â  Though Statistics as a field is vast, limited concepts involving quantitative methods are useful in data science.

The science of collecting, describing, and interpreting data is popularly known as Statistical leveraging in Data Science

Two areas of Statistics in Data Science:

Descriptive statistics

â€“ Methods of organizing, summarizing, and presenting data in an informative way

Inferential statistics

â€“ The methods used to determine something about a population based on a sample

A strong statistics foundation is mandatory for data science professionals, as statistics is the basis for any data analysis.

Statistics is also predominantly used in Machine Learning for feature engineering.
