Statistics and Machine Learning Toolbox™ provides two additional
data types. Work with ordered and unordered discrete, nonnumeric data
types. Store multiple variables, including those with different data
types, into a single object using the
data type. However, these data types are unique to Statistics and Machine Learning Toolbox.
For greater cross-product compatibility, use the
types, respectively, available in MATLAB®. For more information
see Create Categorical Arrays, Create and Work with Tables, or
and Categorical Arrays.
