A quick Introduction to Exploratory data analysis

Exploring your data

Here we show a small data set and look at the normality of the data.

We use EDA to be a shortened reference for Exploratory Data Analysis. We can use boxplots, qqplots and ecdf plots. If you have groups look at these plots within a group.

Why do we do this? well many methods require the valid assumption that your data comes from a normal distribution. Here is a short example as a downloadable pdf
