Variables used in a random forest
Find out which predictor variables are actually used in the random forest.
varUsed(x, by.tree=FALSE, count=TRUE)
- An object of class
- Should the list of variables used be broken down by trees in the forest?
- Should the frequencies that variables appear in trees be returned?
by.tree=FALSE, a integer vector containing frequencies that variables are used in the forest. If
by.tree=TRUE, a matrix is returned, breaking down the counts by tree (each column corresponding to one tree and each row to a variable).If
by.tree=TRUE, a list of integer indices is returned giving the variables used in the trees, else if
by.tree=FALSE, a vector of integer indices giving the variables used in the entire forest.
data(iris) set.seed(17) varUsed(randomForest(Species~., iris, ntree=100))
