This paper presents a case study for motivating the use of data mining in a social agent-based simulation framework. The data used in this article come from the social simulation platform SocLab. They were generated from a model designed to analyze a real situation related to the management of a river in the South West of France. Several standard statistical methods are used to analyze the possible outcomes of the discussion between the actors. Finally, a typology of these outcomes is obtained with a self - organizing map. The presentation is accessible to readers with an intermediate level of statistics.
