SPSS: Modeling: Making Critical Connections: Predictive Analytics in Government
sponsored by IBM

Government agencies are trying to detect patterns in large, complex data sets and make critical connections for a variety of purposes, including attempting to prevent and defuse threats to the public.

But this requires connecting the dots through information of varying types, often from disparate sources.

Predictive analytics can help agencies make these pivotal connections, combining advanced analytical technologies with decision-support capabilities.

This brief paper explores how predictive analytics tools can help government agencies sift through data to gain insights that lead to well-informed decisions. Read on to learn how predictive analytics enables:

  • Law enforcement agencies to detect patterns in criminal behavior and suspicious activity
  • Auditors of tax returns and Medicare/Medicaid claims to compare info across cases to understand normal activity patterns
  • Disease management analysts to examine events that led to positive outcomes across time and patient populations
  • And so much more
