How to compute a growth rate function?

Hello community,

I'm a new RapidMiner user and I need help about a subject.

We have a large dataset and I need to make a function which use some attributes:

- attribute

- year


The function will calculate the rate like this:



I've tried with the extension Python but it doesn't work.

For example:

Year               attribute          functionresult

2001              100                 N/A

2002              110                 +10%

2003              133                 +20% 


I hope that I were clear. 

Thanks for your help.

Your Fab

    Take a look at the Series extension and the Lag operator, along with Generate Attributes.  That should take care of this for you.
