Creating Variables: Age
Hi all! Today I’d like to a cover a pretty universally predictive variable: age. Age can be created in relation to the date of a particular event (like an application date or a mailing date), or as a reflection of age today, at this moment. Either way, age is often predictive and easy to add to your dataset by creating it in Veera Construct from a “birth date” field.
The first step in doing so is to hook your data source to a transform node:
After opening the transform node, we’ll want to click on the function button and select the second “YearsBetween” function.
Where ‘[A]’ corresponds to the variable in your dataset that represents birthdate, and “TODAY()” is the Today function from the drop-down menu on the right.
Where ‘[A]’ corresponds to the variable in your dataset the represents birthdate, and ‘00/00/0000’ represents the specific date on which you’d like to measure age.
Harness the power of many.
