Instance reduction methods are popular methods that reduce the size of the datasets to possibly improve the classification accuracy. We present a method that reduces the size of the dataset based on the percentile of the dataset partitions which we call IPRed. We evaluate our and other popular instance reduction methods from a classification perspective by 1-nearest neighbor algorithm on many real datasets. Our experimental evaluation on the datasets shows that our method yields the minimum average error with statistical significance.
