Data Filtering and Sorting Indigo DRS Help

Data Filtering is the process of choosing a smaller part of a Data Set and using that subset for viewing or analysis.

Filtering may be used to:-

  • Look at results for a particular period of time.
  • Calculate results for particular groups of interest.
  • Exclude erroneous or “bad” observations from an analysis.
  • Train and validate statistical models.

Filtering requires a specific a rule or logic to identify the cases you want to included or excluded in the analysis. Data Filtering can also be referred to as Data “subsetting” or a Data “drill-down”.

Data Sorting is the process that involves rearranging the Data into some meaningful order to make it easier to understand, analyze or visualize.

When working with Data, sorting is a common method used for visualizing it in a form that makes it easier to comprehend the story the Data is telling.
