Wrapper function of missing value completion

Share:

Description

It is a wrapper function for missing value completion.

Usage

1
MV.missingValueCompletion(decision.table, type.method = "deletionCases")

Arguments

decision.table

a "DecisionTable" class representing a decision table. See SF.asDecisionTable. Note: missing values are recognized as NA.

type.method

one of the following methods:

  • "deletionCases": See MV.deletionCases.

  • "mostCommonValResConcept": See MV.mostCommonValResConcept.

  • "mostCommonVal": See MV.mostCommonVal.

  • "globalClosestFit": See MV.globalClosestFit.

  • "conceptClosestFit": See MV.conceptClosestFit.

Value

A class "MissingValue" which contains

  • val.NA: a matrix containing indices of missing value (i.e., unknown values) positions and their values.

  • type.method: a string showing the type of used method. In this case, it is "deleteCases".

## generate new decision table
