# Statistics Essentials for Analytics

A self-paced course that helps you to understand the various Statistical Techniques from the very basics and how each technique is employed on a real world data set to analyze and conclude insights. Statistics and its methods are the backend of Data Science to “understand, analyze and predict actual phenomena”. Machine learning employs different techniques and theories drawn from statistical & probabilistic fields.
