Statistical Learning is a branch of applied statistics that emerged in response to machine learning, emphasizing statistical models and assessment of uncertainty. Organizations are being deluged with numerical and non-numerical data and information. All of us in day-to-day routine use numbers in our calculations. Problems in business contain a great degree of the quantitative element in the form of facts and figures. It is essential to carry out data analysis and interpretation for effective decisions.
