Modelling Environment: Data Grid

You can open a Data Grid directly from the Modelling Environment. The grid is populated with the same dimensions used within the Modelling Environment and allows you to extend your investigation into the use of each dimension or behavioural feature and understand the data in more detail.

  • Open a new Modelling Environment window

  • Add an Analysis and Base selection

If you intend to use Behavioural Features in your investigation, your selections must contain date rules and you should set an appropriate Training Date.

  • Add some Dimensions – Income and Occupation

  • Right click to add Behavioural Features and select Count(Bookings) using…

  • Select Booking Date

  • Right click on that Behavioural Feature and choose to Generate different units of date period

  • Build the Modelling Environment

The Data Grid does not require you to build the Modelling Environment. However, it is likely you will build the Modelling Environment and explore the dimensions as part of your investigation, as well as using the Data Grid.

From within the Modelling Environment:

  • Click the Data Grid icon

  • Build the Data Grid to view the results

By default, the Data Grid returns 1000 records, split across the Analysis group according to your specified proportions. If no proportions have been specified, the split will be 50/50.

Added in Q122 - flexibility to display values associated with evaluation contexts as well as training contexts

The above example demonstrates how you can use a Data Grid to show values of behavioural features and event time points for individual people in a training context. When you launch a Data Grid, you have the option to display the values associated with either the training or evaluation contexts, with a further option to display the values used in features which involve calculations - for example, when showing the difference between two time-frames.
