Learn how to normalize data so that you can force it to have a way more useful distribution. Like change non-normal transaction data to a nice bell-curve type shape.

So that is a bit of a snarky title. Today, I want to talk about techniques that you can use to transform non-normal data into a distribution that makes way more sense. This can be useful for all kinds of analysis like time-series I deal with non-normal…
