SAS Global Forum 2011 Data Mining and Text Analytics Paper 156-2011 Bump Hunting With SAS ® : A Macro Approach To Employing PRIM

By Jennifer Sniadecki Allos Therapeutics


Many learning-based data mining methods can be used to classify particular subgroups of interest. One such method, the patient rule induction method (PRIM), is used to identify subgroups with extreme values of the target variable (i.e., outcome or dependent variable).
