# predab.resample

##### Predictive Ability using Resampling

`predab.resample`

is a general-purpose
function that is used by functions for specific models.
It computes estimates of optimism of, and bias-corrected estimates of a vector
of indexes of predictive accuracy, for a model with a specified
design matrix, with or without fast backward step-down of predictors. If `bw=TRUE`

, the design
matrix `x`

must have been created by `ols`

, `lrm`

, or `cph`

.
If `bw=TRUE`

, `predab.resample`

stores as the `kept`

attribute a logical matrix encoding which
factors were selected at each repetition.

```
predab.resample(fit.orig, fit, measure,
method=c("boot","crossvalidation",".632","randomization"),
bw=FALSE, B=50, pr=FALSE, prmodsel=TRUE,
rule="aic", type="residual", sls=.05, aics=0,
tol=1e-12, force=NULL, estimates=TRUE,
non.slopes.in.x=TRUE, kint=1,
cluster, subset, group=NULL,
allow.varying.intercepts=FALSE, debug=FALSE, …)
```

##### Arguments

- fit.orig
object containing the original full-sample fit, with the

`x=TRUE`

and`y=TRUE`

options specified to the model fitting function. This model should be the FULL model including all candidate variables ever excluded because of poor associations with the response.- fit
a function to fit the model, either the original model fit, or a fit in a sample. fit has as arguments

`x`

,`y`

,`iter`

,`penalty`

,`penalty.matrix`

,`xcol`

, and other arguments passed to`predab.resample`

. If you don't want`iter`

as an argument inside the definition of`fit`

, add … to the end of its argument list.`iter`

is passed to`fit`

to inform the function of the sampling repetition number (0=original sample). If`bw=TRUE`

,`fit`

should allow for the possibility of selecting no predictors, i.e., it should fit an intercept-only model if the model has intercept(s).`fit`

must return objects`coef`

and`fail`

(`fail=TRUE`

if`fit`

failed due to singularity or non-convergence - these cases are excluded from summary statistics).`fit`

must add design attributes to the returned object if`bw=TRUE`

. The`penalty.matrix`

parameter is not used if`penalty=0`

. The`xcol`

vector is a vector of columns of`X`

to be used in the current model fit. For`ols`

and`psm`

it includes a`1`

for the intercept position.`xcol`

is not defined if`iter=0`

unless the initial fit had been from a backward step-down.`xcol`

is used to select the correct rows and columns of`penalty.matrix`

for the current variables selected, for example.- measure
a function to compute a vector of indexes of predictive accuracy for a given fit. For

`method=".632"`

or`method="crossval"`

, it will make the most sense for measure to compute only indexes that are independent of sample size. The measure function should take the following arguments or use …:`xbeta`

(X beta for current fit),`y`

,`evalfit`

,`fit`

,`iter`

, and`fit.orig`

.`iter`

is as in`fit`

.`evalfit`

is set to`TRUE`

by`predab.resample`

if the fit is being evaluated on the sample used to make the fit,`FALSE`

otherwise;`fit.orig`

is the fit object returned by the original fit on the whole sample. Using`evalfit`

will sometimes save computations. For example, in bootstrapping the area under an ROC curve for a logistic regression model,`lrm`

already computes the area if the fit is on the training sample.`fit.orig`

is used to pass computed configuration parameters from the original fit such as quantiles of predicted probabilities that are used as cut points in other samples. The vector created by measure should have`names()`

associated with it.- method
The default is

`"boot"`

for ordinary bootstrapping (Efron, 1983, Eq. 2.10). Use`".632"`

for Efron's`.632`

method (Efron, 1983, Section 6 and Eq. 6.10),`"crossvalidation"`

for grouped cross--validation,`"randomization"`

for the randomization method. May be abbreviated down to any level, e.g.`"b"`

,`"."`

,`"cross"`

,`"rand"`

.- bw
Set to

`TRUE`

to do fast backward step-down for each training sample. Default is`FALSE`

.- B
Number of repetitions, default=50. For

`method="crossvalidation"`

, this is also the number of groups the original sample is split into.- pr
`TRUE`

to print results for each sample. Default is`FALSE`

.- prmodsel
set to

`FALSE`

to suppress printing of model selection output such as that from`fastbw`

.- rule
Stopping rule for fastbw,

`"aic"`

or`"p"`

. Default is`"aic"`

to use Akaike's information criterion.- type
Type of statistic to use in stopping rule for fastbw,

`"residual"`

(the default) or`"individual"`

.- sls
Significance level for stopping in fastbw if

`rule="p"`

. Default is`.05`

.- aics
Stopping criteria for

`rule="aic"`

. Stops deleting factors when chi-square - 2 times d.f. falls below`aics`

. Default is`0`

.- tol
Tolerance for singularity checking. Is passed to

`fit`

and`fastbw`

.- force
see

`fastbw`

- estimates
see

`print.fastbw`

- non.slopes.in.x
set to

`FALSE`

if the design matrix`x`

does not have columns for intercepts and these columns are needed- kint
For multiple intercept models such as the ordinal logistic model, you may specify which intercept to use as

`kint`

. This affects the linear predictor that is passed to`measure`

.- cluster
Vector containing cluster identifiers. This can be specified only if

`method="boot"`

. If it is present, the bootstrap is done using sampling with replacement from the clusters rather than from the original records. If this vector is not the same length as the number of rows in the data matrix used in the fit, an attempt will be made to use`naresid`

on`fit.orig`

to conform`cluster`

to the data. See`bootcov`

for more about this.- subset
specify a vector of positive or negative integers or a logical vector when you want to have the

`measure`

function compute measures of accuracy on a subset of the data. The whole dataset is still used for all model development. For example, you may want to`validate`

or`calibrate`

a model by assessing the predictions on females when the fit was based on males and females. When you use`cr.setup`

to build extra observations for fitting the continuation ratio ordinal logistic model, you can use`subset`

to specify which`cohort`

or observations to use for deriving indexes of predictive accuracy. For example, specify`subset=cohort=="all"`

to validate the model for the first layer of the continuation ratio model (Prob(Y=0)).- group
a grouping variable used to stratify the sample upon bootstrapping. This allows one to handle k-sample problems, i.e., each bootstrap sample will be forced to selected the same number of observations from each level of group as the number appearing in the original dataset.

- allow.varying.intercepts
set to

`TRUE`

to not throw an error if the number of intercepts varies from fit to fit- debug
set to

`TRUE`

to print subscripts of all training and test samples- …
The user may add other arguments here that are passed to

`fit`

and`measure`

.

##### Details

For `method=".632"`

, the program stops with an error if every observation
is not omitted at least once from a bootstrap sample. Efron's ".632" method
was developed for measures that are formulated in terms on per-observation
contributions. In general, error measures (e.g., ROC areas) cannot be
written in this way, so this function uses a heuristic extension to
Efron's formulation in which it is assumed that the average error measure
omitting the `i`

th observation is the same as the average error measure
omitting any other observation. Then weights are derived
for each bootstrap repetition and weighted averages over the `B`

repetitions
can easily be computed.

##### Value

a matrix of class `"validate"`

with rows corresponding
to indexes computed by `measure`

, and the following columns:

indexes in original overall fit

average indexes in training samples

average indexes in test samples

average `training-test`

except for `method=".632"`

- is .632 times
`(index.orig - test)`

`index.orig-optimism`

number of successful repetitions with the given index non-missing
