This course covers the essential exploratory techniques for summarizing data. These techniques are typically applied before formal modeling commences and can help inform the development of more complex statistical models. Exploratory techniques are also important for eliminating or sharpening potential hypotheses about the world that can be addressed by the data. We will cover in detail the plotting systems in R as well as some of the basic principles of constructing data graphics. We will also cover some of the common multivariate statistical techniques used to visualize high-dimensional data.

TOP REVIEWS FROM EXPLORATORY DATA ANALYSIS
This is a great introductory course on the topic and on R language.
You will get acquainted with basic R functions which are most useful for initial statistical analysis.
Good introduction. The swirl exercises kind of reproduce the lectures though- felt like it might not have been the most efficient use of time to go over the exact same example again.
The course on Exploratory Data Analysis was highly enjoyable. I used to do a lot of this sort of thing in my job, but now spend more of my time managing people. It is fun to get "hands-on" again.
Nice course, but too much focus on "R" as a tool.... Industries don't use R as much... The course must be made more generic and independent of R - understand it is not easy to do but ....
