Why Study Statistics for Data Science?

Statistics is the cornerstone of Data Science. Only when you know the various statistical techniques used in analysis, would you be able to use them. Statistics provides a foundation for analyzing the performance of a research method and that’s not limited to use in just science, but it has been of widely applied in other industries like Finance, Logistics and Marketing.

This subject is a fundamental ingredient in the skillset of a Data Scientist in the modern day. It is only the specific functions of Statistics for Data Science that you need to master and our free statitics course gives you just that.
