Analysis of FIFA World Cup Data Set


Background/objectives: To analyze a data set related to FIFA World Cup using a suitable method. Methods/statistical analysis: In this study we have taken up the data sets of the FIFA World Cup and analyzed them using Python and R programming. The analysis focused on: a) which team conceded a greater number of goals than they scored; b) the percentage of goals scored in the First Half, Second Half, Extra Time, and Penalty Shootout; the c) highest average attendance in a particular stage of the match. Findings: Python seems to be an emerging programming language and is thriving to a great extent. Due to its advantages of easy-to-learn syntax, improved readability, object-oriented programming support, integration support, and extensive libraries, this language is adaptable in many fields and hence increasing its applications.
