Parameters | Studies | Predictor Categorical Variables

Some processes can work only with numeric predictors. For these processes, one or more indicator variables consisting of 0s and 1s are created for each level of each class predictor variable.Caution: Specifying a very large number of variables or using a data set with a large number of variables can prohibitively increase the time needed to run this process. If the number of predictors is greater than 5000 or so, it is likely desirable to perform some type of predictor reduction before running this process.All of the variables in the input data set are displayed in the Available Variables field.

Highlight one or more variables. To highlight multiple variables at once, hold down while left-clicking on them.
