Random Forest and Categorical variable

Hello

 

I have categorical variables with more then 2 classes as X predictor for Boostrap Forest. Should I recode them into Dummy 0/1 binary Variables?

Regards,

 

Ludo

Re: Random Forest and Categorical variable

There is no need to create dummy variables.  JMP will handle the categorical columns without modificaiton.
