Decision Tree Induction (DTI) is an important step of the segmentation methodology. It can be viewed as a tool for the analysis of large datasets characterized by high dimensionality and nonstandard structure. Segmentation follows a nonparametric approach, since no hypotheses are made on the variable distribution. The resulting model has the structure of a tree graph. It is considered a supervised method, since a response criterion variable is explained by a set of predictors.
