Sample text

Another possibility is to replace the variable with ‘purchase of a fashionable pen’ without specifying the colour as this information is likely to be available at the time of application. The new variable must be created in the dataset so that a value is available both in the training and in the application period. The success of the predictive modelling must be assessed. This is usually done by comparing predictions with outcomes. However, we need to look at the whole process to ensure that it has been worthwhile.

Measured data, such as a person’s weight, usually has a Normal distribution. The Normal distribution also arises when average ­values are plotted instead of individual values. For example, if average customer lifetimes are calculated for random samples of customers, then a histogram of averages will probably have a Normal shape. The larger the number in the s­ amples, the closer the average values will be to an approximately Normal distribution. 2 Data Partition: Random Samples for Training, Testing and Validation There are usually more than enough customers (or cases) available for almost all questions in the analysis.

So in preparing the model, we use input variables up to 31 October and target variables for December 1–31. In the application period, the model is used with input variables from the current year to 31 October to determine who should be sent promotional literature this year. We are predicting purchasing behaviour of customers December 1–31 this current year. Note that we have left the whole of November for the processing and delivery of the mailshot. Besides the temporal shift in the data, the availability of the data also needs to be considered.
