Categorizing continuous variables, Advanced Statistics

Categorizing continuous variables: A practice which involves the conversion of the continuous variables into the series of the categories, which is common in the field of medical research. The rationale is partly statistical (avoidance of the convinced hypothesis about nature of the data) and partly which the clinicians are often happier when the categorizing individuals. In usual there are no statistical advantages in such type of procedure.
