Nominal factor in Prediction Profiler

Aug 22, 2016 2:09 AM

Dear community,

I am trying to use the prediction profiler with one of the factors having the nominal data type. In the example below, the Factor 1 can assume two values, “One” and “Two”. The formula to be profiled contains a ‘Match’ statement that selects the numerical value 1 or 2, according to which string (“One” or “Two”) is entered, see the example code:

dt = New Table("Simulate",

Add Rows( 1 ),

New Column("Factor 1",

Character,

"Nominal",

Set Values({"One"})

),

New Column("Factor 2",

Numeric,

"Continuous",

Format("Best", 12),

Set Values([3])

),

New Column("Response",

Numeric,

"Continuous",

Format("Best", 12),

Formula(Match( :Factor 1, "One", 1, "Two", 2 ) * :Factor 2)

)

);

Profiler(

Y(:Response),

Simulator(

Factors(

Factor 2 << Random( Normal( 3, 0.1 ) )

)

)

)

When I run this code, a profiler report opens, like the one shown.

Now, here is my question: How do I get the dropdown menu below the graph for Factor 1 to show both options “One” and “Two”? The profiler and the simulation result should then change, according to which string value is chosen for Factor 1.

Any help is much appreciated.

Re: Nominal factor in Prediction Profiler

Try adding another row to your table:

dt = New Table**(**"Simulate",

Add Rows**(** **1** **)**,

New Column**(**"Factor 1",

Character,

"Nominal",

Set Values**({**"One", "Two"**})**

**)**,

New Column**(**"Factor 2",

Numeric,

"Continuous",

Format**(**"Best", **12****)**,

Set Values**([****3**, **3****])**

**)**,

New Column**(**"Response",

Numeric,

"Continuous",

Format**(**"Best", **12****)**,

Formula**(**Match**(** :Factor 1, "One", **1**, "Two", **2** **)** * :Factor 2**)**

**)**

**)**;

Profiler**(**

Y**(**:Response**)**,

Simulator**(**

Factors**(**

Factor 2 << **Random****(** Normal**(** **3**, **0.1** **)** **)**

**)**

**)**

**);**

Re: Nominal factor in Prediction Profiler

Looks like you've found a bug with respect to the factor setting in the graph and drop down not always moving together. I've reported that and we'll see if we can get it addressed in a future release.

Re: Nominal factor in Prediction Profiler

When I define a factor as random and use a non-normal distribution there seems to be no link at all.
