In our last post on data analysis, we asked a lot of questions. Data analysis isn’t a series of generic questions we can apply to every dataset we encounter, but it can be a helpful way to frame the beginning of your analysis. This post is, simply, some more questions to ask yourself if you’re having trouble getting started.
The terminology I use below (tall, dense and wide) is due to Francis Diebold. You can find his original post here and it’s well worth a read.
Remember, these generic questions aren’t a replacement for a thoughtful, strategic analysis. But maybe they will help you generate your own questions to ask your data.
