Exploratory Analysis of Data

Intelligent data mining depends on knowing the behavior of the variables that make up each record in the database. That is, the parameters of the variables, summary statistics such as:

  • Min, max, mean, standard deviation, etc.
  • What each variable represents in the real world, which variables are potentially useful dependent variables
  • How variables in the database relate to each other and (especially) to potential dependent variables
