Description

Create confusion table between a vector of true classes and a vector of predicted classes, calculate the Balanced Error rate

Usage

get.confusion_matrix(truth, all.levels, predicted)

get.BER(confusion)

Arguments

truth

A factor vector indicating the true classes of the samples (typically Y from the training set).

all.levels

Levels of the 'truth' factor. Optional parameter if there are some missing levels in truth compared to the fitted predicted model

predicted

Vector of predicted classes (typically the prediction from the test set). Can contain NA.

confusion

result from a get.confusion_matrix to calculate the Balanced Error Rate

Details

BER is appropriate in case of an unbalanced number of samples per class as it calculates the average proportion of wrongly classified samples in each class, weighted by the number of samples in each class. BER is less biased towards majority classes during the performance assessment.

Value

get.confusion_matrix returns a confusion matrix. get.BER returns the BER from a confusion matrix
