This One Tip Will Make You A Better Data Analyst

There is a lot of data available to marketers and marketing analysts today.

All this data is useless unless analysts can analyze it to find insights that help business stakeholders make better decisions.

Calculating averages, deviations from standards, and doing regression analysis are some of the ways analysts try to find insights in that data.

However, to be better analysts, you have to go deeper than what most analysts do.

And that deeper step is not rocket science but a simple step to visualize the data as a part of your data analysis.

To understand why this step can help you become a better data analyst, let’s look at the following data set.

When analyzed using statistics, seems like all the data sets are similar. See the image below.

However, when the same data sets are visualized, a different story emerges from each of the sets.

As you can see above, data visualization unlocked some insights that were hidden even when statistical analysis was done.

So there you have it. If you want to be a great data analyst of any kind, you have to learn how to visualize the data.

I highly encourage you to check out Bay Area Times, which provides examples of data visualization that you can take inspiration from.
