Information About Data Cleaning

Step-by-Step Guide for Data Analysis

Like any other scientific discipline data analysis follows a strict, step-by-step procedure. Each stage requires different skills. To gain valuable insight, it is important to understand the whole process. You can create strong and lasting results by using a framework.

This article will explain the essential steps in data analysis. This article will show you how to set your goals, collect data, and perform an analysis. This post will provide examples and highlight some tools that can make your journey easier. Once you are done, you will be better able to grasp the basics. This will enable you to customize the process to suit your needs.

Step 1: Define Your Question

The first step in any data analysis process is to determine your goal. This is commonly referred to in data analytics as the “problem statement”.

To determine your objective, you must first create a hypothesis. Then figure out how to test it. Think about the business problem you want to solve. Although it may seem simple, this can be a complex problem. The top management of your organization may ask you questions such as “Why aren’t we losing customers?” It is possible, however, that this does not address the root cause. Data analysts must fully understand the business and its goals in order to properly frame the problem.

Let’s say you work for TopNotch Learning. TopNotch creates custom training software for its clients. Although it is great for securing new customers and has lower repeat business, TopNotch software can be customized to meet your needs. The question is, “Why are we not losing customers?” Which factors negatively impact customer experience? Oder, even better, “Which customer experience factors are negatively affecting?”

After identifying the problem, you can identify which data sources are most useful in solving it. This is where your business acumen shines once again. You may have noticed that the sales process for new clients is very smooth but the production team is slow. This could indicate that the sales process is very successful at securing new clients but the customer experience is not. Could this be why customers don’t return? Which data sources can you use to answer that question?

There Are Tools That Can Help You Define Your Goal

The key to achieving your goal is soft skills, business knowledge, and lateral thinking. Monitoring key performance indicators (KPIs), and business metrics is essential. Monthly reports can be a great way for you to find and fix any issues in your business. Databox and DashThis, two examples of KPI dashboards available for a nominal fee, are Databox or DashThis. Grafana, Freeboard and other open-source software are also available. These software are great for creating simple dashboards at the beginning and end data analysis.

Northwest Database Services has 34+ years experience with all types of data services, including mail presorts, NCOA, and data deduplication. If your database systems are not returning poor data, it is definitely time for you to consult with a data services specialist. We have experience with large and small data sets. Often, data requires extensive manipulation to remove corrupt data and restore the database to proper functionality. Call us at (360)841-8168 for a consultation and get the process of data cleaning started as soon as possible.

Find Out About Minnesota


Minnesota is located in the Upper Midwestern United States. With more than 5.75 million inhabitants, it is the 12th-largest U.S. state by area. Minnesota is home the western prairies that have been converted to intensive agriculture. The southeast has deciduous forests, which are now being cleared and farmed. There are also the North Woods that are less populated and used for recreation, mining, forestry and logging.


Minnesota’s name derives its name from the Dakota language. It has been home to various indigenous peoples since at least the Woodland period in the 11th century BCE. Two areas of indigenous Hopewell tradition emerged between 200 and 500 CE: the Laurel complex north and Trempealeau Hopewell south in the Mississippi River Valley. Upper Mississippian culture was composed of Siouan speakers and the Oneota people. It emerged in 1000 CE. It survived through the arrival Europeans in 17th century Europe.

Major Cities & Towns

As of the 2010 census, there were 17 cities in the state with a population above 50,000. They are listed in descending order by population: Minneapolis, Saint Paul and Rochester, Duluth. Bloomington, Brooklyn Park. Plymouth, Saint Cloud. Woodbury. Eagan. Maple Grove. Coon Rapids. Eden Prairie. Minnetonka. Burnsville. Apple Valley. Blaine. Lakeville.

Minnesota experiences extreme temperatures typical of its continental climate with cold winters, and hot summers.


Minnesota’s population increased from 6,120 white settlers to Minnesota in 1850 to over 1.7million by 1900 and 3.4million in 1960. The growth slowed down, with a 11% increase to 3.8million in 1970 and an average of 9.9% in the following three decades, to 4.9million in 2000.


Minnesota was once primarily a producer and exporter of raw materials. Now, the economy is focusing on finished products and services. The economy’s most distinctive characteristic is its diversity. The relative outputs of its different business sectors closely mirror the United States. Minnesota’s economy was worth $383 billion in 2019. 33 of the top 1,000 largest publicly traded companies in America by revenue were headquartered in Minnesota in 2019.
