Data, the use and abuse of it

Level: Advanced

We are all data driven, we all say we use data to inform our decisions but are we using it right, are we mis-interpreting it do we value data that is meaningless because we aren't applying it right - if we are being data driven we need to make sure we are getting the right data as accurately as possible. Let us figure out what the right questions we should be asking and if the data really provides this. This is tool agnostic, but it will talk about how you can slice and dice it in Looker Studio (new name for Google Data Studio) as well as showing why data in tools such as Google Analytics can sometimes be corrupted.
