JMP on Tuesday Session #12 Partition  Tutorial

Thank you for your questions during the session. We're sharing the answers here for everyone and for us to improve our JMP skills together.

Q1: How R square, G^ 2 and log worth are related together? can you explain their relationship?

R2 is a measure of the amount of variation explained by splitting the data into groups

  • G2 is an indication of variation in the data set
  • LogWorth is a p-value transformation ( e.g. -log10(0.01) = 2)
  • R2 higher, P value will be smaller, LogWorth will be bigger


Q2: What is the maximum number of splits possible for catagorical and continuous data?

  • There is no definite answer, The statistical goal of the partition process is to create groups that have the smallest possible G2

Q3: can we stop splitting without achieving G^2 Value as Zero?

  • Sure, of course. You have the full control of the splitting

Q4: How to make use of K-fold cross validation in partition?  

  • From the “Partition” Hot Spot (Red triangle), choose “K Fold Crossvalidation” will do 


Q5:  Under Column Contribution, do we have a threshold to determine if the factors are significant (something similar to Pvalue)?

  • Understand what you are looking for , but as I know, seems there is no indication / threshold for partition. Generally choose the top few columns as your focus will do


­ Q6:  Hi, new JMP user here. Do you have a recommended data size limit for using JMP? Can it handle medium and big data?

Technically there is no limitation. JMP is using the memory which your computer allocates to it

  • Usually recommend x64bits (vs x32bits), JMP PRO when dealing with big data


­ Q7:  How is the validation column created? ­‑

  • Main menu “Analyze” -> “Predictive Modeling” -> “Make Validation Columns” 


Q8:  does validation signifies the confirmation of poisonous and edible­?

  • Validation is to measure the quality of your model. Your predictive model will be more robust with validation


Q9:  is G **2 same as variation, sigma **2?

  • G2 A fit statistic used for categorical responses (instead of sum of squares that is used for continuous responses). Lower values indicate a better fit
