Methodology Overview
The first part of our methodology involved ranking the attributes we had chosen for analysis. This ranking was done in order to determine which attributes were relevant to the information we were mining. Ranking enabled us to eliminate any attribute(s) that were of little-or-no significance to our decision attribute.

Next, we looked at all client accounts to predict which accounts were credit card holders and which were not. This was accomplished via classification analysis using the See5 tool.

Finally, we examined all credit card holders to discern characterizations of this particular sub-set of the bank's clientele. The Cobweb tool in Weka was used to obtain the clusters used in this step.
