5 SQL Queries That Popularly Used in Data Analysis

Here are five popular SQL queries frequently used in data analysis. 1. SELECT with Aggregations Summarize data by calculating aggregates like counts, sums, averages, etc. SELECT department, COUNT(*) as employee_count, AVG(salary) as average_salary FROM employees GROUP BY department; 2. JOIN Operations  Combine data from multiple tables based on a related column. SELECT e.employee_id, e.name, d.department_name FROM employees e JOIN departments d ON e.department_id = d.department_id; 3. WHERE Clause for Filtering Filter records based on specified conditions. SELECT * FROM sales WHERE sale_date BETWEEN '2024-01-01' AND '2024-12-31'   AND amount > 1000; 4. ORDER BY Clause for Sorting Sort results in ascending or descending order based on one or more columns. SELECT product_name, price FROM products ORDER BY price DESC; 5.

How to use Python Interactive Shell in an easy way

It's like this: Python leads a double life. It's an interpreter for scripts that you can run from the command line or run like applications, by double-clicking the scripts.

What is Interactive Shell?

But it's also an interactive shell that can evaluate arbitrary statements and expressions. This is extremely useful for debugging, quick hacking, and testing.

I even know some people who use the Python interactive shell in lieu of a calculator!

Launch the Python interactive shell in whatever way works on your platform, and let's dive in with the steps shown here:

First Steps in the Interactive Shell

>>> 1 + 1 ❶
2
>>> print 'hello world' ❷
hello world
>>> x = 1 ❸
>>> y = 2
>>> x + y
3
❶ The Python interactive shell can evaluate arbitrary Python expressions, including any basic arithmetic expression.
❷ The interactive shell can execute arbitrary Python statements, including the print statement.
❸ You can also assign values to variables, and the values will be remembered as long as the shell is
open (but not any longer than that).
