Data analysis can sometimes feel like finding a needle in a haystack, especially when dealing with large amounts of information. However, introducing data grouping and binning has transformed this process, making it significantly less intimidating. Pluralsight’s course “Grouping Data into Bins and Categories” is a beginner-friendly guide that takes you on a journey to master these essential techniques. The course spans a concise 53 minutes but packs a wealth of knowledge. This is my 55th Pluralsight course.
The course is structured into three main sections: Creating and Categorizing Bins, Integrating Bins into DataFrame, and Visualizing Binned Data. Each unit comprises several clips that delve into various data binning and visualization aspects.
Creating and Categorizing Bins
Starting with a quick introduction, the course sets the stage by discussing the purpose, importance, and benefits of data grouping and binning. Subsequent clips offer hands-on demonstrations on generating a random dataset and binning the data with a set number of bins. Here, you’ll learn how to build a bin array, choose the right number of bins, and categorize each bin.
Integrating Bins into DataFrame
The next section transitions into integrating bins into a DataFrame. You’ll discover how and why to add a new bin with defined categories into a DataFrame, followed by practical demonstrations on adding a new bin and multiple bins to a DataFrame.
Visualizing Binned Data
Finally, the course culminates with the exciting part – visualizing binned data. The clips in this section introduce the concept of data visualization with histograms and explain how to create simple and advanced histograms for visualizing binned data. The course wraps up with a discussion on the real-world applications of data binning.
By the end of this course, you’ll be well-equipped to organize, categorize, and visualize data effectively. This skill set will enable you to sort through large amounts of data and spot patterns and trends, facilitating data-driven decision-making.
