Book description
Written for students in undergraduate and graduate statistics courses, as well as for the practitioner who wants to make better decisions from data and models, this updated and expanded second edition of Fundamentals of Predictive Analytics with JMP(R) bridges the gap between courses on basic statistics, which focus on univariate and bivariate analysis, and courses on data mining and predictive analytics. Going beyond the theoretical foundation, this book gives you the technical knowledge and problemsolving skills that you need to perform realworld multivariate data analysis.First, this book teaches you to recognize when it is appropriate to use a tool, what variables and data are required, and what the results might be. Second, it teaches you how to interpret the results and then, stepbystep, how and where to perform and evaluate the analysis in JMP .
Using JMP 13 and JMP 13 Pro, this book offers the following new and enhanced features in an exampledriven format:
 an addin for Microsoft Excel
 Graph Builder
 dirty data
 visualization
 regression
 ANOVA
 logistic regression
 principal component analysis
 LASSO
 elastic net
 cluster analysis
 decision trees
 knearest neighbors
 neural networks
 bootstrap forests
 boosted trees
 text mining
 association rules
 model comparison
With today’s emphasis on business intelligence, business analytics, and predictive analytics, this second edition is invaluable to anyone who needs to expand his or her knowledge of statistics and to apply realworld, problemsolving analysis.
This book is part of the SAS Press program.
