A pattern is extracted that characterizes the reference data from the reference data according to the classification information assigned by the input. The index is determined by evaluating the relation between the object data and the specified case based on the extracted pattern and set to the object data. The plurality of pieces of object data are ranked according to the index and reported the user.
