predict.glmnet

0th

Percentile

make predictions from a "glmnet" object.

Similar to other predict methods, this functions predicts fitted values, logits, coefficients and more from a fitted "glmnet" object.

Keywords
models, regression
Usage
## S3 method for class 'glmnet':
predict(object, newx, s = NULL,
type=c("link","response","coefficients","nonzero","class"), exact = FALSE, offset, ...)
## S3 method for class 'glmnet':
coef(object,s=NULL, exact=FALSE, ...)
Arguments
object
Fitted "glmnet" model object.
newx
Matrix of new values for x at which predictions are to be made. Must be a matrix; can be sparse as in Matrix package. This argument is not used for type=c("coefficients","nonzero")
s
Value(s) of the penalty parameter lambda at which predictions are required. Default is the entire sequence used to create the model.
type
Type of prediction required. Type "link" gives the linear predictors for "binomial", "multinomial", "poisson" or "cox" models; for "gaussian" models it gives the f
exact
If exact=TRUE, and predictions are to made at values of s not included in the original fit, these values of s are merged with object$lambda, and the model is refit before predictions are made. If
offset
If an offset is used in the fit, then one must be supplied for making predictions (except for type="coefficients" or type="nonzero")
...
Not used. Other arguments to predict.
Details

The shape of the objects returned are different for "multinomial" objects. This function actually calls NextMethod(), and the appropriate predict method is invoked for each of the three model types. coef(...) is equivalent to predict(type="coefficients",...)

Value

  • The object returned depends on type.
