so I have a data.frame that is setup like so, with about 2000 rows.
It's basically some Sales data for different Brands by Customer, and there is about 30 Distinct Brands, with various different spends by different customers. Brands do repeat with different customers.
The analysis that I want to do is, to do a correlation matrix of these 30 Brands, so see if there is a customer affinity between some Brands or high correlations between Brands, etc..
This is just trying to learn, I know how to run a lot of the R code for correlation, and there is plenty of examples on the internet, I am just not sure how to prepare the data set so that I can do the correlations and also matrix ready that I can also do some chart correlation graphics, etc...
What is the best way to transform this dataset to get it ready for correlation analysis ?
I would appreciate some code R examples for this part, thank you!
