Lolz, I had the dream of starting my own setup. In fact, I've started the process but those I involved didn't help matter. Some are serious among them but they are very busy. I've stopped working on it for now

Data analytics is a very lucrative career path to build on and follow, I can say this confidently because I'm already on the path. Its one career that will soon be trending, but to become a professional data analyst or data scientists here are the steps to climb on your career path. knowing how to use SPSS, e-view or math lab, is not enough.
1: a degree in a statistics and math based course, like b.sc mathematics, statistics, computer science and economics. Because as a data analyst you will need a solid background in inferential statistics, Calculus and quantitative techniques.
2: A solid knowledge in programming, because you will need this skill to manipulate large data, build models, so this is a must.
3: This is the final career path you will climb. you will to learn data analytics as a professional, learning and using advance software tools like R programming which is more popular, python programming for data science, etc.
depends on your preferences

peacettw:babe. You don't need to understand statistics. Just know the basics. I'm an art inclined educator. But I'm a bad data analyst.

Bro, you can build a career from Data Analysis, however it is pertinent you understand the following;
1. To be a good data analyst you must understand data science and to do this it is good you have sound knowledge in any of the numerate science or some aspect of the humanities.
2. A sound knowledge of research method is necessary for a data analyst to progress from beginner to expert.
3. Knowing the software tool is not enough, you may be very good at using SPSS, but if don’t understand statistics and research method, you may find it difficult to interpret the result generated by the software.
4. A good knowledge of statistics and research method is necessary also because, it will help you know the appropriate statistical test to apply in different problem scenarios.
5. Don’t limit yourself to SPSS only. There are a multiplicity of data analysis tools. SPSS is just one of them e.g.
- MATLAB – Matrix Laboratory used mostly in Science and for scientific modelling. It also provides SIMULINK for simulations.
- E-View used monthly in Economics and Econometrics
- EPI-INFO – Health Statistics and epidemiology.
- CS-PRO – Open Source used in health statics.
- STATISTICA, MATHEMATICA
- STATA – Econometrics
- R (Data Analysis, Simulation, Modelling)
EView, CSPRO is used by several internal NGOs (FHI360, John Snow, MSF etc) in their monitoring and evaluation projects.
ODK with the pervasive of the internet and mobile broadband penetration another strong emerging platform in Data Analysis is ODK which makes it easy for data to be collected and analysed of mobile devices.
Finally my take for you is;
a. Master at leats 2 – 3 data analysis platforms
- SPSS (with AMOS – AMOS allows SPSS users to do Strutured equation modelling), R and CS-PRO
- SPSS, Eview, STATA
- SPSS, ODK, R
b. You can work as a freelancer. A lot of post graduate students in tertiary institutions are looking for people to help them analyse their data both at undergraduate and post graduate level. Start from institutions closest to you.
c. Build a network around do funded NGOs a lot of them require data analyst to help out in data analysis for the projects and field surveys.
Thank you. See you at the top.

Don't just learn data analysis, add research design and instrumentation, business plan writing, etc. If you can, concentrate on the Social/Management Sciences, especially PG students (PGD, MBA, MSC, PHD). Also, learn more about Mendeley, Grammarly, etc. You can check them out on Google. Best wishes
|Re: Can I Make A Living Out Of Data Analysis by Klins2000(m): 10:07am On Aug 19, 2017|
Interested in the business. I am also a researcher and research consultant for BSc, PGD, MSc, PhD and other scholarly papers, in the areas of media and communication, information and knowledge management, library and information science, education, and related areas. HOW CAN WE PARTNER?
|Re: Can I Make A Living Out Of Data Analysis by Acidosis(m): 10:09am On Aug 19, 2017|
You need to learn the rudiments of statistics and research methodology alongside. My knowledge of research methodology with basic accounting principles enable me to write business plans, conduct field surveys for business owners and research students.
Data analysis is very very broad, you can't know it all, there are hundreds of tools out there, I use Ms Excel, SPSS and one qualitative data analysis tool. I've been doing this for 4 years, and I'm not ready to quit anytime soon as no other job has offered me the earning and level of satisfaction I currently derive. Take time to build your network...some clients work with you for 2 years and even more. There's no limit to what you can achieve.
|Re: Can I Make A Living Out Of Data Analysis by Ermacc: 10:13am On Aug 19, 2017|
peacettw:exactly. Detailed interpretation to your analysis is key. If you can add other statistical packages like eviews, stata and deep excel, you are good to go.
|Re: Can I Make A Living Out Of Data Analysis by Ermacc: 10:15am On Aug 19, 2017|
Mosesbutez:yes you can. Thats how i had balled in my uni days. Money for clothes, phones, shoes and of course, the ladies all came for my data analysis hustle.
|Re: Can I Make A Living Out Of Data Analysis by peacettw(f): 10:16am On Aug 19, 2017|
@op, this is the path you never want to follow otherwise you will be churning out data that makes little to no sense.
A perfect analogy will be like using a calculator while not understanding maths. SPSS is nothing but a gigantic calculator. Understanding statistics gives it a meaning. Besides, how on earth will u know what statistical tool to use in spss, if you don't have an understanding what you want.
Shortcuts never works. Anything worth doing is worth doing well. But of course, it's your choice to make.
|Re: Can I Make A Living Out Of Data Analysis by otabuko(m): 10:21am On Aug 19, 2017|
peacettw:Seriously, that's why I pointed to basics. Like knowing that 2 variables require t-test/chi-square. And above Anova and so on. I didn't say not knowing anything at all. Regards

Data Analysis is a can be taken as a profession. Just network yourself to the quarter where your services is needed.
|Re: Can I Make A Living Out Of Data Analysis by VeeVeeMyLuv(m): 10:35am On Aug 19, 2017|
bros, like people here have said knowing spss is not enough, you have to understand the "NATURE" of the DATA you are analyzing to know the best method to apply.
