Support for Transition nodes in SEQ CLUSTERING RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All

    Node_Support in BOL (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/cc645747.aspx) for transitions nodes in Sequence Clustering is defined as
    "Percentage of cases in the cluster that represent a specific transition. Can be 0, or can have a positive value. Calculated by taking the raw support for the cluster node, and multiplying by the probability of the cluster."
    I am looking at a transition row that has a value of 262 for support. The node to which this transition belongs has a support value of 1148 and a probability of 0.4747. Is the figure for support for the transition row so high due to EM being used as the clustering method?
