predict.dbplsr {dbstats}R Documentation

Predicted values for a dbpls object


predict.dbplsr returns the predicted values, obtained by evaluating the Distance-based partial least squares function in the new data (newdata). newdata can be the values of the explanatory variables of these new cases, the squared distances between these new individuals and the originals ones, or rows of new doubly weighted and centered inner products matrix G.


## S3 method for class 'dbplsr'



an object of class dbplsr. Result of dbplsr.


data.frame or matrix which contains the values of Z (if type.var="Z". The squared distances between k new individuals and the original n individuals (only if type.var="D2"). Finally, the G inner products matrix (if type.var="G").


set de type of newdata. Can be "Z" if newdata contains the values of the explanatory variables, "D2" if contains the squared distances matrix or "G" if contains the inner products matrix.


arguments passed to or from other methods to the low level.


predict.dbplsr produces a vector of predictions for the k new individuals.


Look at which way (or type.var) was made the dbplsr call. The parameter type.var must be consistent with the data type that is introduced to dbplsr.
