A Model to Find Outliers in Mixed-Attribute Data sets using Mixed Attribute Outlier Factor

M. Krishna Murthy, A. Govardhan and Lakshmi Sreenivasareddy D

Outliers are records in real datasets which have abnormal behavior comparing with other records in datasets. Finding outliers in numerical dataset is easy. Many methods are available for numerical datasets. Number of methods is also available for categorical datasets. But very less number of methods are available for mixed attribute Datasets. In available methods the concept of frequent pattern mining is used. Finding different frequent patterns from datasets for the categorical attributes is a cumbersome process. In this proposed model Mixed Attribute Outlier Factor (MAOF) is presented. Which is a simple technique and it requires only one scan of data set. MAOF is derived based on Attribute Value frequency for Categorical part of data set and cosine factor from mean value order set to remaining numerical data points in the data set. Average of these two factors will give the MAOF score. This model is applied on a Bank data set which is a real data set taken from UCI ML repository [10]. This method shows the good results.
