  • Introduction

Data Cleaning & Processing
Data cleaning and processing are essential steps in the data analysis process that ensure the accuracy, consistency, and reliability of collected data. Data cleaning involves identifying and addressing issues such as missing values, outliers, duplicates, and inconsistencies in the data. By handling these issues, data cleaning enhances the quality and integrity of the dataset. Data processing involves transforming the cleaned data into a suitable format for analysis. This includes tasks such as data transformation, where data is standardized or scaled, and data integration, which combines data from multiple sources. Additionally, data processing involves aggregating and summarizing the data to facilitate analysis and formatting it appropriately for analytical tools or models. By performing data cleaning and processing, organizations can ensure the data they use for analysis is reliable and accurate. This improves the quality of insights and decisions derived from the data, enabling organizations to make informed and data-driven choices.
