Hi,

My first post and I hope to learn a lot.

I am working with a dataset which consists of lot of categorical variables and target is continuous. I am in a fix will linear regression give meaningful insight? Struggling with dummy variables and predicting the test set.

I am also wondering on a idea which goes like to read each row as a word and try to find the distribution of that word over the entire data set and group the target accordingly. Does it make sense?

thanks
