Predict new results for CART® Classification

Run Stat > Predictive Analytics > CART® Classification. Click the Predict button at the end of the results.

Select the option that best describes your data.

You can use prediction values that are stored in a worksheet, or you can enter individual values. Prediction values do not have to be in the same worksheet as the classification tree data, but must be in the active worksheet. Select the worksheet that contains the prediction values before you click the Predict button.

It is important to choose prediction values that are within the range of the original data.

Enter columns of values

Complete the following steps if your prediction values are in columns.

  1. From the drop-down list, select Enter columns of values.
  2. Enter the columns that contain your prediction values. You must have one column for each predictor. The predictor columns must be the same length and must be the same type as the original predictor variable.

By default, Minitab stores the prediction statistics in the same worksheet as the prediction values.

Enter individual values

Complete the following steps if your prediction values are not in columns.

  1. From the drop-down list, select Enter individual values.
  2. Enter individual prediction values. You can enter up to 3 values for each predictor. If you have more than 3 values, use columns in a worksheet to enter the prediction values.
