The cost of living changes, as does the unemployment level—driven (we say) by the economy and marketplace. ” The features of objects captured as data form a reflection of this great system of the world. If the reflection is accurate, the features themselves, to a greater or lesser degree, represent that system. It is in this sense that data is said to represent or, sometimes, to form a system. 2 Capturing Measurements For the data miner, objects actually consist of measurements of features. It is the groups of features that are taken as the defining characteristics of the objects, and actual instance measurements of the values of those features are considered to represent instances of the object.

Several variables are measured. Each measurement is, of course, subject to the point distortion, or error, described previously. 3 represents such a single measurement. The central point of each circle represents the idealized point value, and the surrounding circle represents the unavoidable accompanying fuzz or error. Whatever the value of the actual measurement, it must be thought of as being somewhere in this fuzzy area, near to the idealized point value. 3 Taking several point measurement values with uncertainty due to error outlines a measurement curve surrounded by an error band.
