Exploratory Data Analysis Visualizations

This course is a CrashProgram (short course) introducing exploratory data analysis. The course is at an introductory technical level. It requires some familiarity with credit risk data (and an ability to open and inspect data files). Step by step we build the knowledge required to perform a comprehensive exploratory data analysis Prerequisites: The course can be pursued on a standalone basis. It is advisable to pursue the course after DAT31046 (Risk Data Review) which discusses a review of the data from a data quality validation perspective.
