Get up-and-running with IBM SPSS Modeler without going into too much depth. Identify interesting relationships within your data and build effective data mining and predictive analytics solutions. IBM SPSS Modeler allows users to quickly and efficiently use predictive analytics and gain insights from your data. With almost 25 years of history, Modeler is the most established and comprehensive Data Mining workbench available.

This book takes a detailed, step-by-step approach to introducing data mining using the de facto standard process, CRISP-DM, and Modeler's easy to learn "visual programming" style. You will learn how to read data into Modeler, assess data quality, prepare your data for modeling, find interesting patterns and relationships within your data, and export your predictions. Using a single case study throughout, this intentionally short and focused book sticks to the essentials.

This book provides an overview of various popular data modeling techniques and presents a detailed case study of how to use CHAID, a decision tree model. Assessing a model's performance is as important as building it; this book will also show you how to do that. Finally, you will see how you can score new data and export your predictions. By the end of this book, you will have a firm understanding of the basics of data mining and how to effectively use Modeler to build predictive models. - Quantitative Analysis and IBM® SPSS® Statistics by Abdulkader AljandaliCall Number: Available onlineISBN: 9783319455273Publication Date: 2016-11-15Introduction to IBM SPSS Statistics
