Scenario and the Task
Introduction
The Business Analytics subject domain is considered to be one of the major area where most of the companies and various profitable and non- profitable institutions consider for achieving the best decision support in their respective various operations life cycles.

The amount of information generated in modern agile economic environment is very high and nature of consistency also highly varies within short time frame. Because of the fact that utilization of big data analysis considered as one of the prime concern to deal with the data to produce credible and valuable information. During the process of conversion data to decision supportive information it is very important use different data analysis methods, techniques and tools that are comprehensively explained in data analytics. The high importance of data analytics subject elements leads to include those in modern management information systems and decision support information systems for enabling online analytical processing to incorporate with connected operational databases, data marts and data warehouses.
In performing big data analysis, it is very important to use good statistical software. At present there are many such products available under generic or bespoke software category considering open source or closed source. Usually open source products are financially feasible for many organizations compared to closed source products. At present big data analysis rapid growth identifiable in open source category with frequent versions and many feature extensions compared to closed source. On the other hand, side much reliable many software products have been released by industry pioneer solution providers. Therefore, section of the best product for data analysis is also need to be done wisely by relevant authorities of organizations for their objectives to be precisely achieved.
SCENARIO
Prestige of an occupation considered to be vital factor in planning human resource needed for national development planning in short term and long term. Identification of factors contribute for prestige of an occupation is very crucial in deciding what industries and professions need to be given priority when national development planning are done by government with the support of ministries such as industry and commerce.
The dataset comprises of information about various types occupations in Canada. The information includes education, income, women, prestige, census, occupation type. Any changes in those directly influence to have prestige score variations.
The ministry of industry and commerce is considering getting full-scale data science support to develop essential business intelligence required for further elaboration of the suggestions given by the consultants with the support of national and international real world examples in human resource management. The company has appointed a panel of experts in the field of data science to facilitate the aforementioned with the aid of local and foreign intelligence. Assume that you are one of the data scientists in the panel assigned with a special set of tasks to accomplish and provide a report of what factors contribute in prestige of occupation. You are required to complete the below mentioned tasks and prepare a report based on the findings.
