Classification Based on Tree-Structured Allocation Rules
Vaughn, Brandon; Wang, Qiu
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (63rd, Montreal, Canada, April 11-15, 2005)
We consider the problem of classifying an unknown observation into one of several populations using tree-structured allocation rules. Although many parametric classification procedures are robust to certain assumption violations, there is need for discriminant procedures that can be utilized regardless of the group-conditional distributions that underline the model. The tree-structured allocation rule will be discussed. Finally, Monte Carlo results are reported to observe the performance of the rule in comparison to a discriminant and logistic regression analysis.
