Who Is a Data Analyst?



I’m doing a science experiment for my biology class for the first time and me and my science partner are having trouble finding what a data analysis is, can someone please give me a good definition for what a data analyst is.


  1. A data analyst is someone who analyzes, researches, queries, reviews data with the goal of finding useful information, insight, trends, etc.
  2. A data analyst usually looks at large amounts of data which is typically stored in relational databases, queries the data using tools like SQL, analyzes the results of the data using mathematical / statistical / analytical methods and makes a recommendation based on the inferences or insight gained from analyzing the data.
