Association rule mining plays an important job in knowledge and information discovery. Often the number of the discovered rules is huge and many of them are redundant, especially for multi-level datasets. Previous work has shown that the mining of non-redundant rules is a promising approach to solving this problem, with work in [14,18,19,20] focusing on single level datasets. Recent work by Shaw et. al. [15] has extended the non-redundant approaches presented in [14,18,19] to include the elimination of redundant exact basis rules from multilevel datasets. In this paper, we propose an extension to the work in [14,15,18,19,20] to allow for the removal of hierarchically redundant approximate basis rules from multi-level datasets through the use of the dataset’s hierarchy or taxonomy. Experimentation shows our approach can effectively generate both multi-level and cross level non-redundant rule sets which are lossless.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
