pmf_list: A prebuilt distribution for correlated binary data

Description Usage Format References


This data contains probability mass functions (pmf's) for correlated binary data for various parameters. The sum of correlated exchangeable binary data is a generalization of the binomial distribution that deals with correlated trials. The correlation in decision trees occurs as the subsampling and bootstrapping step in random forests touch the same data, creating a co-dependency. This data contains some pre-calculated distributions for random forests with 500, 1000, and 2000 trees with 10, 100, and 1000 features. For more distributions, they can be calculated via the correlbinom R package.
