CVd {bestglm}R Documentation

Cross-validation using delete-d method.

Description

The delete-d method for cross-validation uses a random sample of d observations as the validation sample. This is repeated many times.

Usage

CVd(X, y, d = ceiling(n * (1 - 1/(log(n) - 1))), REP = 100, family = gaussian, ...)

Arguments

X

training inputs

y

training output

d

size of validation sample

REP

number of replications

family

glm family

...

optional arguments passed to glm or lm

Details

Shao (1993, 1997) suggested the delete-d algorithm implemented in this function. In this algorithm, a random sample of d observations are taken as the validation sample. This random sampling is repeated REP times. Shao (1997, p.234, eqn. 4.5 and p.236) suggests d= n(1-1/(log n - 1)), This is obtained by taking λ_n = log n on page 236 (Shao, 1997). As shown in the table Shao's recommended choice of the d parameter corresponds to validation samples that are typically much larger that used in 10-fold or 5-fold cross-validation. LOOCV corresponds to d=1 only!

n d K=10 K=5
50 33 5 10
100 73 10 20
200 154 20 40
500 405 50 100
1000 831 100 200

Value

Vector of two components comprising the cross-validation MSE and its sd based on the MSE in each validation sample.

Examples

#Example 1. delete-d method
#For the training set, n=67. So 10-fold CV is like using delete-d
#with d=7, approximately.
data(zprostate)
train<-(zprostate[zprostate[,10],])[,-10]
X<-train[,1:2]
y<-train[,9]
set.seed(123321123)
CVd(X, y, d=7, REP=10)
#should set to 1000. Used 10 to save time in example.
