While searching for information related to our Big Data Course I found a web based data analysis tool called Statwing. This is a free program that anyone can use to check the statistical significance of one variable on another variable. For the video tutorial below I choose to look at NBA player statistics to see if there is any correlation between the team the player is on or the position they play on the # of games played, minutes played, usage rate, true shooting percentage, percent of field goals assists, rate of assists against possessions used, turnover rate, offensive rebound rate, defensive rebound rate, total rebound rate, and player efficiency rating. I gathered my data from www.hoopdata.com which is an affiliate of ESPN. In some areas the results kind of surprised me but many others were as expected. I hope you find the following video useful. Thanks for watching.
