Daim (version 1.1.0)

deLong.test: DeLong test

Description

A nonparametric test for comparing AUC of two or more correlated ROC curves.

Usage

deLong.test(x, labels, labpos, ref=NULL, conf.level=0.95)

Arguments

x
at least 2 dimensional matrix containing the observations of numeric predictors.
labels
a vector containing the true class labels. It can be a factor or character vector.
labpos
a character string of the variable labels that defines a "positive" event.
ref
an index of reference predictors. Relevant only by pairwise comparisons.
conf.level
confidence level of the interval.

Examples



y <- rbinom(100, 1, .5)
x1 <- rnorm(100) + 1.5 * y
x2 <- rnorm(100) + .5 * y
x3 <- rnorm(100) + 2.5 * y
x <- data.frame(x1,x2,x3)
y <- as.factor(y)

(M1 <- deLong.test(x, labels=y, labpos="1"))
