Learning Data Analysis Via Case Studies From A Leading Textbook Author

“We also wanted to use the textbook to talk about important social issues [like] why do men make more than women? And so, one case study is about understanding the gender gap in the US and why is there a 15, 20% difference in earnings.”
– Gábor Békés
