Member name | Value | Description | |
---|---|---|---|

Default | 0 | Returns Ordinal. | |

Ordinal | 0 | The variable should be codified as an ordinal variable, meaning they will be translated to symbols 0, 1, 2, ... n, where n is the total number of distinct symbols this variable can assume. This is the default encoding in the Codification filter. | |

Categorical | 1 | This variable should be codified as a 1-of-n vector by creating one column for each symbol this variable can assume, and marking the column corresponding to the current symbol as 1 and the rest as zero. | |

CategoricalWithBaseline | 2 | This variable should be codified as a 1-of-(n-1) vector by creating one column for each symbol this variable can assume, except the first. This is the same as as Categorical, but the first symbol is handled as a baseline (and should be indicated by a zero in every column). | |

Continuous | 3 | This variable is continuous and should be not be codified. | |

Discrete | 4 | This variable is discrete and should be not be codified. |
