●Annual Statistical Report of various food products from New York:

Performed and developed a report on increasing food calories in New York from the work published by “Allison. D. – Counting calories (1993).”

Tests Performed: One-Way Anova, 2- Sample T-test. (Minitab.SAS)

●Prediction and Classification Analysis on Airline Data:

Developed an average number of flight delays with machine learning algorithms (kNN) and predicted the overall performance of late flights with and without flight numbers in models from “Airline on-time Performance Dataset” donated by Bureau of Transportation Statistics.

Tests Performed: k Naïve Bayes Algorithm, Decision Tree, Random Forest (Classification) (R-Studio. SAS)

●Model Building for Housing Prices in Boston:

Performed regression Analysis and assumptions to analyze the dataset using the data step PROC REG and built a linear regression model for housing prices as dependent variable.

Tests performed: linear regression, normality, linearity, Breusch-pagan, Forward selection (SAS)

Time Series Analysis on Closing prices of Amazon Inc. Stock- (R-Studio, Tableau)

Performed Basic Time Series Analysis and autocorrelation function using ARIMA process on Amazon Inc. historical prices dataset extracted from Yahoo Finance Website. (R-Studio)

●Regression Analysis of Wage & Multivariable –(SAS, Tableau)

Performed multiple regression analysis on wage with 526 potential explanatory variables and validated the assumption of normality, equal variance, and independency in SAS. Identified influential observations by using leverage value, DFFITS, Cook’s Distance, and DF BETA. Applied Box-Cox transformation and simplified model using backward selection and Stepwise selection with evaluations of AIC, SBC, Adj R2, and Cp.

●Advanced SAS Programming- (SAS, SQL)

Collaborated with 2 classmates to collect data of NFL season data. Implemented analysis plan applied to the data, including player salaries and performance statistics for running backs. Specifically, carried out 1-way ANOVA and regression analysis. Created SAS Transport file, cleaned files, eliminated any extraneous variables, and combined cleaned data and regression analysis with Macro statements. Wrote SAS SQL procedures to manipulate aggregate and merge datasets.

●Prediction Analysis, Heart disease Analysis (Python, SAS)

Used SAS to create, read, update, and delete large data. Used SQL to cover exploratory data analysis, summarized data and applied regression analysis though SAS to fit the regression model.

Predicted by using regression equation whether the patient has the Heart disease are not.
