<p>A study is reported of the use of ripple-down rule induction to develop a metamodel of ten years of clinical data captured as part of the development of an expert system for thyroid diagnosis. It is shown how the suitability for inductive knowledge discovery from such real-world data can be characterized in terms of its stationarity, and how the best error rates achievable and the amount of data necessary to achieve them can be estimated.</p>
