The output table contains the midrange-scaled values for the input data set. As explained in the descriptions of the arguments Multiplier and Intercept, the formula for computing the scaled value X' from the input value X is:

X' = intercept + multiplier * (X - location)/scale

The formulas for computing location and scale for the midrange method (from Scale Arguments) are:

• location = (maxX+minX)/2
• scale = (maxX-minX)/2

The values minX and maxX are the minimum and maximum values of X, respectively.

For example, consider row 1 of the price column in the input table and the following output table:
Item Value
intercept 0 (default)
multiplier 0 (default)
Input value X 42000
Minimum input price value minX 42000
Maximum input price value maxX 88500
location (88500+42000)/2 = 65250
scale (88500-42000)/2 = 23250
Scaled output value X' 0 + 1 * (42000-65250)/23250 = -1
