RangeMid (DMX)

Returns the midpoint of the predicted bucket that is discovered for a discretized column.


RangeMid(<scalar column reference>)

Applies To

Discretized scalar columns.

Return Type

A scalar value.


When used with SELECT FROM <model> PREDICTION JOIN (DMX), the RangeMin, RangeMid, and RangeMax functions return the actual boundary values of the specified bucket. For example, if you perform a prediction on a discretized column, the query returns the predicted bucket number in the discretized column. The RangeMin, RangeMid, and RangeMax functions describe the bucket that the prediction specifies. When the RangeMid function is used with a PREDICTION JOIN statement, the scalar column reference can only contain discrete, predictable columns.


The following example returns the minimum, maximum, and average values for the Yearly Income continuous column in a TM Decision Tree mining model.

    RangeMin([Yearly Income]) AS [Bucket Minimum],
    RangeMid([Yearly Income]) AS [Bucket Average], 
    RangeMax([Yearly Income]) AS [Bucket Maximum]
FROM [TM Decision Tree]
