Most data analyses are confirmatory, but exploratory studies can find unexpected non-linear & many-variable interaction effects. The methodology of reconstructability analysis (RA) is explicitly designed for exploratory modeling. It analyzes both nominal and continuous (binned) variables, is easily interpretable, takes standard text input, is web-accessible, and is available for research use. This presentation reports some results of applying RA to data sets from Preece (auto accidents) and Wright (auto/motorcycle/bike accidents, hit pedestrians, and falls).
