The Lift function is a powerful tool for explaining patterns in Ipiphany. Use it to help expose the root causes of issues.
Lift calculates the amount a pattern is over indexing (appearing more frequently than normal) for your selection or filter. A lift of 1 means that it appears at a normal rate, a lift of 3 means that it occurs 3 times as often in your selection than it does in the overall data.
Lift is available in the:
- Explain tab of the Preview Panel
- Chart settings popup, 'Where' field
- Axis, Color or Size settings of charts
Note: Lift is only available when previewing a pattern or when a filter has been applied.
