Data Science Language Analysis

  • R
  • Experimental Analysis

It is common to hear from people working with data that they have a clear choice between R and Python. We were curious to know if there could be a specific reason underlying such choice. After some brainstorming, we came up with the hypothesis that a person’s choice between R and Python might be due to their preference in a specific data science task such as data visualization, data wrangling and machine learning. We have set the goal to explore such causal relationship (if there exists one) with data in our data analysis project.
