**Normalization** in statistics is used to bring the entire probability distributions of adjusted values into alignment.

**Step-by-step guide**

**1. Select the numeric field**

Select the numeric field you want to normalize in the **Schema View**.

**2. Open the operation configuration window**

Click the ** "Add operations"** button at the top of the workspace, then click the

**tab, then click "**

*"Numerical operations"***.**

*Normalize"*

**3. Set the parameters of the operation**

The following parameters can be set:

**Numeric path:**Name of the input numeric source field.**Method**:*Standard normalizer:**The mean value of the distribution is adjusted to 0 while the standard deviation of the distribution is adjusted to 1.**Standard deviation normalizer:**The standard deviation of the distribution is adjusted to 1.**Mean normalizer:**The mean value of the distribution is adjusted to 0.**Min-max normalizer:**The distribution is scaled to the [0-1] range. The minimum value becomes 0 and the maximum value becomes 1.*Maximal absolute value in the distribution is scaled to 1.*Max absolute value normalizer:*

**Output field name:**Normalized values will be stored as a**decimal number**under this field.

**4. Apply the operation**

Click ** "Apply"**. A new decimal number field (named

**by default) has now been generated and added to the schema.**
