# Super-FAST EDA in R with DataExplorer

Written by Matt Dancho on March 2, 2021

Did you know most Data Scientists spend 80% of their time just trying to understand and prepare data for analysis?! This process is called Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA). R has an Insane EDA​ productivity-enhancer. It’s called DataExplorer​.

Here are the links to get set up. 👇

# Use DataExplorer for EDA Exploratory Data Analysis

You're making this DataExplorer EDA Report!

# Super-FAST Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA) in R

In this weekly R-Tip, we're making an "EDA Report", created with the DataExplorer R package. The DataExplorer Package is an excellent package for Exploratory Data Analysis. In fact, it's one of my top 3 EDA Packages.

PRO TIP: I've added EDA on Page 3 of my Ultimate R Cheatsheet. 👇

As you follow along, you can use my Ultimate R Cheatsheet. It consolidates the most important R packages (ones I use every day) into one cheatsheet.

# EDA Report with Data Explorer Automatic Exploratory Reporting

One of the coolest features of DataExplorer is the ability to create an EDA Report in 1 line of code. This automates:

• Basic Statistics
• Data Structure
• Missing Data Profiling
• Continuous and Categorical Distribution Profiling (Histograms, Bar Charts)
• Relationships (Correlation)

Ultimately, this saves the analyst/data scientist SO MUCH TIME. 🚀

DataExplorer just makes EVERYTHING SO EASY. Here's an example of the output of plot_correlations(). In one line of code, we get a correlation heatmap correlation heatmap with categorical data dummied.

It gets better. Everything is one line of code:

• plot_intro(): Plots the introduction to the dataset
• plot_missing(): Plots the missing data
• plot_density() and plot_histogram(): Plots the continuous feature distributions.
• plot_bar(): Plots bar charts for categorical distributions
• plot_correlation(): Plots relationships

Here's the output of plot_bar(). Wow - DataExplorer makes it that easy to make TIME-SAVING EDA VISUALIZATIONS.

You don't need to be Bruce Almighty to do EDA fast anymore.
