Each result surfaced by the system is assigned a score of 1 to 10 on the Radar Trend Scale based on the event’s intensity, impact and business significance. Additionally, every surge or trend is reviewed by a Radar editor who consults the underlying case data and provides context and analysis around the statistical finding.
