One of the challenges in data mining practices is that the datasets vary in complexity and often have different characteristics such as number of attributes, dependent variables characteristics etc. In terms of regression problems, the features that describe the dataset will vary in their complexity, sparseness verses coverage in relation to the decision space, and the number of outcome classes. Fuzzy Decision trees are well-established classifiers in terms of building robust, representative models of the domain. In order to represent different perspectives of the same domain, fuzzy trees can be used to construct fuzzy decision forests to enhance the predictive ability of singular trees. This paper describes an empirical study which examines the applicability of fuzzy tree regression forests to seven different datasets which have complex properties. The relationship between dataset characteristics and the performance of fuzzy regression tree forests is debated.
