Athlete Monitoring: Data Analysis and Visualization – Nominal Analysis

Athlete Monitoring: Data Analysis and Visualization

Nominal Analysis

To remind ourselves, nominal analysis is the same as the continuous (i.e., ratio scale) analysis, but with dummy coding, where each level is represented as an additional variable with 0 or 1. Thus, (rolling) proportions and counts are the methods used to analyze and visualize the nominal variables.

In this video, I am explaining the implementation of the nominal analysis in the athletemonitoring package and prepare() function. Additional topics of daily aggregation (i.e., using mean or sum) on the results is discussed.

The video also explains the plotting functionalities explained in the Continuous Analysis video, but now applied to nominal variables.

Nominal analysis is not as fancy as continuous analysis, but sometimes you will have to analyze this type of data, and athletemonitoring will get you covered.
