SPSS modeler is a work bench for automatic data mining (Chap.  66) and modeling (see also the Chap.  70). So far it is virtually unused in medicine, and mainly applied by econo−/sociometrics. Automatic modeling of continuous outcomes computes the ensembled result of a number of best fit models for a particular data set, and provides better sensitivity than the separate models do. This chapter is to demonstrate its performance with drug efficacy prediction. Ensembled correlation coefficients are computed for the purpose.
