Clustering, DBSCAN, DBI, K-Means, K-Medoid, Obesity


Obesity is an excessive accumulation of body fat and can be harmful to health. This study aims to understand the patterns and relationships between obesity data that have been obtained, so a data clustering step will be carried out using the K-Means, K-Medoid and DBSCAN algorithms. This study utilizes the Davies Bouldin Index (DBI) to determine the best cluster value comparison and validated. So the results of the best cluster value in processing obesity data are using the K-Means K2 algorithm with a value of 0.604. The K-Medoid algorithm obtained the best cluster k2, with a DBI value of around 0.614. and the DBSCAN algorithm clustering trial K3, with a value of 1.040. Thus in this study the comparison results of the application of 3 clustering algorithms, the results obtained are the K-Means algorithm shows the value of the resulting cluster is the best of other algorithms in clustering obesity data with a value of 0.604.
