Standardizing the data

In this lesson, we learn about the basics of standardizing the data.

If our interest lies in working simultaneously with data that are on different scales or units, we can standardize them, so they are placed on the same level or footing. In other words, we will move the distributions from their original scales to a new common scale. This transformation will enable an easy way to work with data that are related, but not strictly comparable.
