  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • In IBM SPSS Modeler 15.0 and FP1's Entity Analytics SOURCE
    nodes, when a respondent uses a PO Box as their address and this
    is mapped to 'ADDRESS.ADDR1', Entity Analytics is not grouping
    these respondents as a single entity. This occurs even when the
    rules are set to 'Aggresive' resolution.
    
    When a street address is used, EA identifies the respondent as
    the same entity and a single EA-ID is assigned.
    
    EA should also identify respondents with the same PO Box as a
    single entity and only one EA-ID should be assigned.
