Description

Fits a lasso model and a lasso followed by a stepAIC algorithm.

Usage

1
2
lassomodel(Data, standardize = TRUE, measure = c("deviance"),
  nfold = 5)

Arguments

Data

a data frame, as a first column should have the response variable y

standardize

Logical flag for variable standardization, prior to fitting the model. Default is standardize=TRUE. If variables are in the same units already, you might not wish to standardize.

measure

loss to use for cross-validation. measure="auc" is for two-class logistic regression only, and gives area under the ROC curve. measure="deviance", uses the deviance for logistic regression.

nfold

number of folds - default is 5. Although nfolds can be as large as the sample size (leave-one-out CV), it is not recommended for large datasets. Smallest value allowable is nfolds=3

Details

the function lassomodel is a wrapper function over the glmnet::glmnet. The parameter lambda is tuned by 10-fold cross-validation with the glmnet::cv.glmnet function. The selected lambda is the one that gives either the minimum deviance (measure="deviance") or the maximum auc (measure="auc") or minimum misclassification error (measure="class")

Value

a list with the coefficients in the final model for the lasso fit and also for the lasso followed by stepAIC.
