20.71 C5.0 Decision Tree Performance

Here we plot the performance of the decision tree, showing a risk chart. The areas under the recall and risk curves are also reported.

predicted <- predict(model, ds[te, vars], type="prob")[,2]
riskchart(predicted, actual_te, risk_te)

An error matrix shows, clockwise from the top left, the percentages of true negatives, false positives, true positives, and false negatives.

predicted <- predict(model, ds[te, vars], type="class")
sum(actual_te != predicted)/length(predicted) # Overall error rate
## [1] 0.1553877
round(100*table(actual_te, predicted, dnn=c("Actual", "Predicted"))/length(predicted))
##       Predicted
## Actual No Yes
##    No  74   5
##    Yes 11  11
