For more information about the options in the Select Columns red triangle menu, see Column Filter Menu in Using JMP.

The Support Vector Machines launch window provides the following options:

Y, Response

The categorical response variable that you want to analyze. This variable can be a binary or multi-class categorical variable.

X, Factor

The predictor variables.


A numeric column that contains at most three distinct values. See Validation in the Partition Models section.


A column or columns whose levels define separate analyses. For each level of the specified column, the corresponding rows are analyzed using the other variables that you have specified. The results are presented in separate reports. If more than one By variable is assigned, a separate report is produced for each possible combination of the levels of the By variables.
