How are levels combined for categorical variables

hello,

In the below image are shown some levels which have been merged into a single level.
Can someone please guide me through the logic of merging the particular levels.

For example in the above image:
‘Sexy’,‘bohemian’ have been merged into ‘sexy’ whereas ‘Flare’,‘Novelty’,‘OL’,‘work’ have been merged into ‘Brief’.
how has this been done?

@pagal_guy Looks like some system based on business context* and not something that was axiomatically derived from first principles. :smile: Check if your source has readme documents with more information.

*Most probably types of clothing.
