Parameters | Predictive Modeling | Variable Selection Method

Variable Selection Method
Use this option to specify the method for selecting the final predictor variables.
This parameter can be specified either using radio buttons or a drop-down menu, depending on the predictive model chosen.
Possible choices are described below:
Caution: Choosing this option can result in long run times when there are thousands of variables.
Genetic Algorithm is not available in Interactive Mode and tends to be slower than Stepwise.
Caution: Genetic Algorithm processing is computationally intensive.
This option does not work with a class predictor.

Note: The methods available to you vary among different predictive modeling processes. Not all are available for every process.
