##### Predicted values based on bagged Earth and FDA models

Predicted values based on bagged Earth and FDA models

- Keywords
- regression

##### Usage

```
## S3 method for class 'bagEarth':
predict(object, newdata = NULL, type = "response", ...)
## S3 method for class 'bagFDA':
predict(object, newdata = NULL, type = "class", ...)
```

##### Value

- a vector of predictions

##### Note

If the predictions for the original training set are needed, there are two ways to calculate them. First, the original data set can be predicted by each bagged earth model. Secondly, the predictions form each bootstrap sample could be used (but are more likely to overfit). If the original call to `bagEarth`

or `bagFDA`

had `keepX = TRUE`

, the first method is used, otherwise the values are calculated via the second method.

##### Examples

```
data(trees)
fit1 <- bagEarth(Volume ~ ., data = trees, keepX = TRUE)
fit2 <- bagEarth(Volume ~ ., data = trees, keepX = FALSE)
hist(predict(fit1) - predict(fit2))
```
