How is Cluster Discrimination view's Favor propertties calculated?


  • Hi

    I'm writing an article using clustering techniques.

    I have to explain the exact meaning of FAVOR and what is the formula of FAVOR properties?

    I thought that maybe it's calculated based on the following formula:

    Favor for specific field = (count of records for specific state in Cluster1 ) / (count of all records in Cluster1)

    but it's wrong.

    I couldn't find any document about how it's calculated.

    Does anybody know how it's calculated?
