How can I get all of the values for a Decision Tree branch + summarizing all of the branches within a node

 

 

Hi Data Mining Community!

 

I saw this question on another SAS-related community and thought I'd share it here in case this pool of experts could shed some light.

 

FYI, 

 

I have a Decision Tree within Enterprise Miner. Let us assume that one of my nominal variables is a significant predictor. And let us pretend it is state within the United States.

 

The tree provides summarized results. For each branch it will usually list out a few of the states or values that branch out that way, plus it will say "misc." How do I find the rest of them within Enterprise Miner?

 

While on that topic, is there a way for me to obtain output so that each of the node definitions are nicely all put together rather than me having to summarize the information myself. I would normally do it myself by creating a summary document based on the contents of the nodes. But I have almost 100 nodes this time.

 

Thank you very much in advance.

Take a look at the video at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IlUZYlgkeSc. Not sure if I can post a screen snapshot here, but I'll try.

If it gets lost, it shows the 'Node Rules', which are the decision rules output as a set of if->then rules.

 

I wasn't able to post the screenshot.
