By the end of this project, you will be able to further your business intelligence goals by confidently analyzing the differences between groups using statistical techniques in any spreadsheet software. Uncovering the relationship between variables is usually at the top of an analyst’s list of goals, when approaching a data set. Pearson’s Chi-Squared Test is a powerful tool that can confirm or invalidate observed differences. In your Chi-Squared in Google Sheets project, you will gain hands-on experience formatting variables within a data set so that you can understand if differences exists in groups, then you will perform several Chi-Squared tests for significance of difference, interpret the probability that significant differences exist, and report your findings. To do this you will work in the free-to-use spreadsheet software Google Sheets. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.


Some familiarity with spreadsheet software is helpful, but not required.
