Scaling skewed variables: box-cox


How do you scale skewed (non normal) variables using Exploratory. I’ve seen the mutate(y=log(x)) function, but what about the Box-Cox transform?


Hi Dan,

You can define a function which does Box-Cox transform in a Script, and call it from mutate step.

I just wrote a short article on how to do it.

Thank you,
