Guided Project: Star Wars Survey - 7. Finding the Most Viewed Movie

As per my observation for the ranking, the newer movies have better ranking (remember ranking of 1 is highest). But as per dataquest “original movies” are rated higher than “newer ones”.

Same way why dataquest says that “original movies” have more viewers than the “newer ones” when the bargraph shows otherway. Could you please explain why is it so?

In this case, there’s some missing domain knowledge that helps shed light on things.

The “original” starwars movies are episodes 4, 5, and 6. The newer moves are prequels: 1, 2, and 3. So when the analysis says originals, it means those episodes with higher numbers.

This is a good illustration that sometimes you need to do some extra research when analyzing data on a specific topic to understand the quirks in the data. It can be frustrating at times, but there are lots of times when you’re going to find yourself analyzing data you don’t totally understand, so it’s a skill worth acquiring.
