Associative classification mining is a promising approach in data mining that utilizes the
association rule discovery techniques to construct classification systems, also known as
associative classifiers. In the last few years, a number of associative classification algorithms
have been proposed, i.e. CPAR, CMAR, MCAR, MMAC and others. These algorithms
employ several different rule discovery, rule ranking, rule pruning, rule prediction and rule
evaluation methods. This paper focuses on surveying and comparing the state-of-the-art associative
classification techniques with regards to the above criteria. Finally, future directions in associative
classification, such as incremental learning and mining low-quality data sets, are also
highlighted in this paper.
