predict.inbagg {ipred}R Documentation

Predictions from an Inbagg Object

Description

Predicts the class membership of new observations through indirect bagging.

Usage

predict.inbagg(object, newdata, ...)

Arguments

object object of class inbagg, see inbagg.
newdata data frame to be classified.
... additional argumends corresponding to the predictive models.

Details

Predictions of class memberships are calculated. i.e. values of the intermediate variables are predicted following pFUN and classified following cFUN, see inbagg.

Value

The vector of predicted classes is returned.

RES <- inbagg(y~w1+w2+w3~x1+x2+x3, data = DATA, pFUN = pFUN)
