Join Ron Davis for an in-depth discussion in this video Detecting categories, part of Excel Data-Mining Fundamentals.
- Okay, using the same inputted data,…the table analysis tool,…we'll look at detect categories.…What this tool is going to do is it's going to look…at the underlying data in this Excel spreadsheet,…and then take all of the columns and look…for similarities and put these into clusters or into groups.…Of course we don't need an ID,…and we'll take everything else in here…and we'll just call run.…It's picked up this category.…You see Category number one, and we can look…at the category characteristics, category income,…very lows, the Relative Importance…to get us into that, and then you see things…as it drops on down.…
