Is it possible to calculate a correlation between string and numeric variables in Knime?
I tried the Linear Correlation node, but it only calculates string - string and numeric - numeric correlations; string - numeric variable pair correlations come out as “?” in the correlation matrix.
Hi Filipa & welcome to the KNIME community forum
Is there any known correlation metric in particular berween strings and numbers you have in mind ?
Maybe you have already used such kind of metric in another data mining tool but it is not available in Knime ?
If so, could you please provide its name to better understand what exactly you need to achieve ?
Thanks in advance.
I did non use such a metric before.
I want to predict if a hotel booking reservation is canceled (dummy variable). My data set has a high number of predictors (categorical and numeric), so it would be very useful to get some sort of association measure between my target and the features before testing an algorithm
