Python Programming Language for Statistics & Data Science

Python is a programming language that was created by Guido van Rossum. The first release of python was in 1991.

Python is known to be very beginner-friendly, so if you are new to programming, this might be the right programming language to learn.

At the same time, python has a huge community that is constantly developing new add-on packages and libraries. Python is therefore very flexible and can, for example, be used to do statistical data analysis, to develop games, or to create entire websites.

Python is open source, making the programming software completely free to use. You don’t have to pay anything in order to try whether python is the right programming language for you.

    In the R Programming section, you have a detailed list of the benefits of using R. For what applications would you say it would be preferred to learn and use Python over R? Thanks!

    • Hey Amos,

      This is a question people discuss over and over – so you will find many different opinions on this.

      In my opinion, both languages are equally good for most tasks. The major difference in my opinion is that R is more commonly used in the fields of statistics and social sciences, and Python is more commonly used in informatics and IT.

      For that reason, I would choose a language depending on the field you are planning to work in.

      I hope that helps!


  • It is really helpful sir. Thank You so much.

  • Hello Joachim and congratulations for your excellent work!!!

    I would like to ask you how run a regression in Python, but instead of having typical coefficients as output, having the standardized coefficients (betas)?

    Thanks in advance,


    • Hi Ilias,

      Thank you very much for the kind feedback, glad to hear that!

      I’m sorry for the delayed response. I was on a long vacation, so unfortunately I wasn’t able to get back to you earlier. Do you still need help with your syntax?


  • Great work keep up

  • Great resources tnx, can you help me

    to Create a new column which is calculated by taking the difference of the two columns
    (3 Marks) Pick 2 of the numeric columns of the dataframe to eliminate from the table. Re-train the classifier using this new dataset. Compare the testing and training error using the 50/50 split of the missing columns classifier with that containing the full set of columns

    • Hi Ana,

      I’m sorry for the delayed reply. I was on a long vacation, so unfortunately I wasn’t able to get back to you earlier. Do you still need help with your syntax?
