### Exploring Statistical Interactions with Python

In the previous post, I analyzed the correlation between 3 development indicators (income per person, life expectancy, policy score, and urban rate) and HIV rate. I found that there was a linear negative association between urban rate and HIV rate (Correlation coefficient = -0.276, p-value = 0.001). This time, I am interested in assessing the … More Exploring Statistical Interactions with Python

### Pearson Correlation with Python

This blog post is dedicated to what I learnt form the Coursera course on Data Analysis Tools: Pearson Correlation, provided by the Wesleyan University. The course addresses correlation analysis using a Python script. To try it by myself, I decided to assess the relationship between 3 development indicators (income per person, life expectancy, policy score, … More Pearson Correlation with Python

### Chi Square Test with Python

This time, I would like to run a Chi-square (χ2) test by coding with Python in Anaconda’s Scientific PYthon Development EnviRonment (Spyder). I am interested in assessing the association between income per person (2010 Gross Domestic Product per capita in constant 2000 US\$) and life expectancy (2011 life expectancy at birth (years). The average number … More Chi Square Test with Python

### Running ANOVA with Python

This time, I learnt how to perform an analysis of variance (ANOVA) with Python. To try it by myself, I decide to check whether 1) there is an association between CO2 emissions and urban rate, and 2) there is an association between income per person and policy score. I recoded the urban rate into a … More Running ANOVA with Python

### Visualizing data with Python

This week, I learnt how to visualize data with Python programming language in Spider integrated development environments (IDE). The purpose was to visualize GapMinder data. The variables of interest are: urban rate, CO2 emissions, suicide rate, breast cancers rate, HIV rate, and income per person. Here is the code I wrote: # -*- coding: utf-8 -*- … More Visualizing data with Python

### Managing data with Python

This is the third week that I am sharing my experience throughout the Coursera course on Data Analysis and Interpretation Specialization. This week is dedicated to data management. The last week, I run frequency distributions of HIV rate, polity score and urban rate. From these frequency distributions, I found that the response values are too spread … More Managing data with Python

### Exploratory data analysis with Python and SAS

In this blog, I am sharing my first program in Python. As I said earlier in my previous post, I will be using the GapMinder dataset provided by the Coursera course on Data Management and Visualization. I run frequency distributions of 2009 estimated HIV Prevalence (%), 2009 Democracy score (Polity), and 2008 urban population (% … More Exploratory data analysis with Python and SAS
