Sample text

Neural network, support vector machine) were to be used, then the nonlinearity can be perfectly modeled. However, if a regression model were to be used (which is typically more common because of its interpretability), then since it can only fit a line, it will miss out on the nonmonotonicity. By categorizing the variable into ranges, part of the nonmonotonicity can be taken into account in the regression. Hence, categorization of continuous variables can be useful to model nonlinear effects into linear models.

Usually, the assignment decision is the most straightforward to make since one typically looks at the majority class within the leaf node to make the decision. The other two decisions to be made are less straightforward and are elaborated on in what follows. 4 Example Decision Tree In order to answer the splitting decision, one needs to define the concept of impurity or chaos. 5, each of which contains good (unfilled circles) and bad (filled circles) customers. Minimal impurity occurs when all customers are either good or bad.

The WOE transformation thus implements a transformation monotonically related to the target variable. 8 29 Calculating Weights of Evidence (WOE) Count Distr. Count Goods Distr. Good Bads Distr. 08% Age 44+ 2,000 1,806 194 This gives a more concise model than the model with which we started this section. However, note that the interpretability of the model becomes somewhat less straightforward when WOE variables are being used. VARIABLE SELECTION Many analytical modeling exercises start with tons of variables, of which typically only a few actually contribute to the prediction of the target variable.
