Variable selection for identification of fatty liver cases: Nonparametric discriminant analysisAuthor(s):
S Padmanaban and Martin L WilliamAbstract:
A forward-model-building algorithm for discriminating two populations in a nonparametric setting has been recently introduced by Padmanaban and William (2016) wherein the restrictions existing in the traditional discriminant analysis have been removed. This latest approach is applicable without assumptions on the two underlying populations. As an application of this approach, we consider the discrimination and classification of fatty liver cases from others using some observable variables that are believed to be related to the health condition of the liver. The discriminant model is developed with a sample of 160 cases drawn from a case-control study. We shall also compare the discriminant model performance with that of logistic regression.Pages: 321-325 | Views: 857 | Downloads: 26Download Full Article: Click Here
