Data Analyst vs Data Scientist
"Data Analyst: prepares more advanced types of analyses." Sorry, but this is controversial. A data scientist can fully assume all the professional activities of a data analyst, but the data analyst will not assume those of the data scientist. Exactly what are the "more advanced situations"? Thanks.
You're right.I believe what is intended here is that a data analyst does a bit more advanced types of analysis than a BI analyst would.
Hey Team DS365, quite a good intro course. But, just an observation that I had, having interacted and worked with some teams here in India, the Data Scientist is perceived to be a better role than the data analyst. Why so? I also notice that most of the data analysts "mostly" rely on data cleaning, filtering and a bit of BI, is that why that could be?
A data scientist is certainly a role that requires much more technical skills - understanding A/B testing, ML algorithms, how to deal with imbalanced and missing data, etc. The two roles are different in their requirements. A data analyst role can be the perfect stepping stone if one wants to become a data scientist.
