Very interesting. I wrotte a post in my blog about it, with a link to your blog post.

An excellet book!

I followed the Chap. 10 and it’s great!! I tryed my own data. Everything was explained and I could follow it and I’m a bigginer in R. The only thing that was different was that the term-document-matrix only show me the dimensions, entries, sparch, maximal term leng, and weight, but no the matrix 😦 but it works!!!

However at the begining of Chap. 11 the

> # change it to a Boolean matrix

> termDocMatrix[termDocMatrix>=1] <- 1

produced the error '[<-. simple_sparse_array´(as.simple_sparse_array(x),…, value= value):

Only numeric subscripting is implemented.

Could you please oriented me?

Thanks for the book!!

Sorry I forgot that with “inspect (termDocumentMatrix)” display the matrix information.

Best

I also have this problem….

“termDocMatrix” is an ordinary matrix, not a term-document matrix created with package tm.

Referring to section 10.7, “myTdm2” is a term-document matrix, and then it is converted into an ordinary matrix “m2” with as.matrix(). After that, “m2” is used as input in section 11.1 for social network analysis.

> m2 <- as.matrix(myTdm2)

Therefore, to use your own data, you need to convert it with as.matrix() first, before running code for social network analysis in chapter 11.

Excellent book for Beginners! I followed The Case Study I: Analysis and Forecasting of House

Price Indices. Has anyone tried this?? Any Ideas on how to go about trying the analysis of property market with other factors not mentioned in the chapter, such as economic environment, population size, CPI (Consumer Price Index)??

You need to do it in a different approach, such as regression or classification, or even time series forecasting with regression.

Thank you so much for the response! I have just started learning, the book has been really helpful.

Still on the Case Study I, The rows in the data comprises of Date (months) and House Index, how do I get the prices of houses in all the months? An example was given on a house that was sold at $535,000 in September 2009, that was used to predict the price in next 2 months which results to $616,083. How do I test the correctness of the predicted price? ($616,083). If I have known the price in the months, I could cut back the data and predict against a date I know the price, That way, I can compare my predicted price with the actual price. Please any idea on How I can get the house price in each month? and other ways (such as 1 month compared to previous 2) of creating different models to compare against my test data so as to know the best model.

I would be glad if i could get any more details on how to manipulate the House price indices Data set.
