FAQs

Q: What is a SPSS modeler?

 

A: The SPSS Modeler is a text analytics and data mining software application from IBM. It is generally used to build predictive models and conduct other analytic tasks. It has a visual interface that allows the users to leverage data mining and statistical algorithms without programming.

 

Q: Explain about CRISP-DM.

 

A: CRISP-DM is cross-industry process for data mining. The CRISP-DM methodology gives a structured approach to planning a data mining project.

 

Q: What is the use of aggregate data?

 

A: Aggregate Data is used to aggregate groups of cases in the active dataset into single cases and it also creates a new, aggregated file, creates new variables in active dataset which contain aggregated data. Cases are generally aggregated based on the value of zero

 

Q: Explain the initial data analysis process?

 

A: Initial data analysis is the process of data inspection steps that are to be carried out after the research plan. 

 

Q: Define BLANKS?

 

A: BLANKS are used to specify the value that the program should use when it encounters a completely blank field for a numeric variable. If a blank field is read with a string format then the resulting value is a blank.
