New to DNN. I have the following dataset enter image description here

My target value is "Purchase" column. I know I need to drop "product_id" column and create dummies for "Gender" and "City_category", but do i need to do onehotencoder on any other column even if they are not categorical? (for instance Stay_In_City_Years) If so, can you explain the reason. thanks for any help

  • $\begingroup$ What problem are you trying to solve? How would making a quantity like "number of years" into a one-hot encoded value help solve that problem? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I am trying to predict purchase price. My general question is, do we onehotencoder only on categorical data or, in some circumstances ,on numerical columns as well? $\endgroup$ Jun 19 '19 at 19:21
