Normalisation of target varible



Can we normalize target variable also??


Hi @raviteja1993,

The target variable can be normalized as well. If you normalize the target variable, predictions will also be in normalized form. So, you have to bring them down to the original scale.


I guess the question should be more like, should we normalize the target values.
I believe it won’t give any mathematical advantage. Please correct me if i am wrong.


I think it’s helpful when we use regression techniques. But It’s not useful in classification.
