  • Hi!

    Nice article! We are doing this with R but I have always wondered how to transfer it to T-SQL.

    I can't find the link to the file mentioned in the article, can you please post it?

    Thanks a lot!


  • where is zip file and sql file .

  • Also can't find the SQL.

    In the absence of this I'm trying to understand the silhouetting explanation. How is the result in the range -1 to 1? Are the distances limited (is the scale on the cluster diagram a percentage)? Even so if you take the greater of the averages X and Y, how can you ever end up with a negative value?

  • It's all a bit confusing to me. I'll reread.

  • I updated the original post of this forum to include

  • I can't see the link anyway, where did you place the link or the file?

    Thank you!

  • There was an issue in formatting. I updated the topic to show the correct formula for Silhouette.

    Sorry for the confusion. If you have any more questions, don't hesitate to ask

  • Article says yellow cluster to be junior high girls, should it be blue?

  • Thank you Susan for the question.

    It's a simple example so it doesn't really matter which color is which. Girls are yellow because that's how my report returned it.

    And you'll notice the legend actually labels the yellow as the girls group.
