Data mining analysis of economic indicators of countries

Güngör, Erdem
Data Mining is becoming a famous analysis day by day to reveal the hidden information within big data. In the study, we use data mining techniques on the economic indicators of the countries. The four data mining techniques are to be implemented on the dataset. Making homogenous groups of the countries whose economic characteristics are similar are obtained by the Clustering Algorithm. After the clustering algorithm is performed, we pass to Association Rule Data Mining to investigate the most exported products by Switzerland to the other countries. With the clustering and association rule mining, we complete the first stage of the data mining that is so-called as unsupervised learning. In the second stage, we build up both classification and regression models with panel data based on the new variables that are obtained by the Principal Component Analysis. The main aim of the second stage is to determine the most important economic predictor variables that have an effect on the grouping of the countries and have an effect on the main economic indicators such as Gross Domestic Product (GDP), Gross National Product (GNP), etc.


Pattern extraction by using both spatial and temporal features on Turkish meteorological data
Goler, Işıl; Yazıcı, Adnan; Karagöz, Pınar; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
With the growth in the size of datasets, data mining has been an important research topic and is receiving substantial interest from both academia and industry for many years. Especially, spatio-temporal data mining, mining knowledge from large amounts of spatio-temporal data, is a highly demanding field because huge amounts of spatio-temporal data are collected in various applications. Therefore, spatio-temporal data mining requires the development of novel data mining algorithms and computational techniqu...
Research data management in Turkey: perceptions and practices
Aydınoğlu, Arsev Umur; TAŞKIN, ZEHRA (2017-01-01)
Purpose - The massive increase in research data being produced nowadays has highlighted the importance of research data management (RDM) to science. Research data not only have to be cost effective but also reliable, discoverable, accessible, and reusable. In this regard, the purpose of this paper is to investigate the perceptions and practices of Turkish researchers on the subject of RDM.
Optimization of an online course with web usage mining
Akman, LE; Akkan, B; Baykal, Nazife (2004-02-18)
The huge amount of information existing in the World Wide Web constitutes an ideal environment to implement data mining techniques. Web mining is the mining of web data. There are different applications of web mining: web content mining, web structure mining and web usage mining. In our study we analyzed an online course by web usage mining techniques in order to optimize the navigation paths, the duration of the time spend on each page and the number of visits throughout the semester of the course. Moreove...

Exponential growth in data volume originating from Internet of Things sources and information services drives the industry to develop new models and distributed tools to handle big data. In order to achieve strategic advantages, effective use of these tools and integrating results to their business processes are critical for enterprises. While there is an abundance of tools available in the market, they are underutilized by organizations due to their complexities. Deployment and usage of big data analysis t...

Among the areas of data and text mining which are employed today in science, economy and technology, clustering theory serves as a preprocessing step in the data analyzing. However, there are many open questions still waiting for a theoretical and practical treatment, e.g., the problem of determining the true number of clusters has not been satisfactorily solved. In the current paper, this problem is addressed by the cluster stability approach. For several possible numbers of clusters we estimate the stabil...
