smotenc | R Documentation |

SMOTENC generates new examples of the minority class using nearest neighbors of these cases, and can handle categorical variables

```
smotenc(df, var, k = 5, over_ratio = 1)
```

`df` |
data.frame or tibble. Must have 1 factor variable and remaining numeric variables. |

`var` |
Character, name of variable containing factor variable. |

`k` |
An integer. Number of nearest neighbor that are used to generate the new examples of the minority class. |

`over_ratio` |
A numeric value for the ratio of the majority-to-minority frequencies. The default value (1) means that all other levels are sampled up to have the same frequency as the most occurring level. A value of 0.5 would mean that the minority levels will have (at most) (approximately) half as many rows than the majority level. |

The parameter `neighbors`

controls the way the new examples are created.
For each currently existing minority class example X new examples will be
created (this is controlled by the parameter `over_ratio`

as mentioned
above). These examples will be generated by using the information from the
`neighbors`

nearest neighbor of each example of the minority class.
The parameter `neighbors`

controls how many of these neighbor are used.
Columns can be numeric and categorical with no missing data.

A data.frame or tibble, depending on type of `df`
