Data science and data analysis toolsets enable you to study nearly anything and everything, so long as a dataset exists.

Sometimes, the subject you’re interested in might not have a dataset.

In cases like these, web scraping, which means extracting data from websites, can come to your rescue.

Read this step by step guide on how to scrape data off the web.
