"Tom, I have had the same situation when using Proc LCA for latent class analysis. What I usually do is run a data step before, and manually recode into binaries. If you know SAS macros, that helps.
"Hi, I realize this thread has been running for some time, but I am new to ABridge. I have uses Multiple Correspondence Analysis and then Hierarchical clustering on the dimensions scores using SPAD software, as mentioned earlier by some one else. In…"
I also doing similar kind of clustering...but the problem Iam facing is that I have around 500K rows. Proc cluster cannot handle such large datasets and another question is how to interpret the clusters from the output??
9 & 1/2 yrs analytics professional with experience in SAS, Predictive modeling, Developing Classifiers, Analytics Insights.
I began with GE Money working as a risk analyst for credit cards. In this position I built several predictive models making good use out of the logistic regression technique. I also built many segmentation models using CHAID and CART for risk management strategies. I moved out of GE Money after 6 years as a Business Manager in the portfolio risk team. My primary tool was SAS.
I joined a very well renowned retailer in their Analytics team. Here I am a Business Manager leading analytics team for stores, merchandising, finance etc. I have gained more experience in segmentation and modeling techniques for different aspects of retail. I am currently trying to work on some forecasting methods viz. ARIMA. Here too my primary tool is SAS.
My favorite area is classical regression methods. Although there are not many areas where this cannot be used, there are several developments in this field which I try to explore. I am in the process of gaining expertise in forecasting systems.

Hi Anindo, I wonder how this project is going? I am relatively new to all of this, and the discussions on this site have been invaluable. I wonder if the tools I suggested (I linked to a list of open source data mining tools, KNIME, Orange (AI Labs), Weka, RapidMinder) have been helpful at all, or whether maybe I was way off on recommending them in the first place (if so i apologize!). Best Regards, Bruno
