Posted in SAS | Comments Off on RPM Part 3: How to use predictive modeling with SAS to analyze crime data

So… what ‘cha gonna do? Use it or Peruse it? SAS Rapid Predictive Modeler (RPM) cranks out models like nobody’s business, and like the academy awards presentation will just “give you the envelope please." If your data is super clean, this mig...

Posted in SAS | Comments Off on RPM Part 2: How to use predictive modeling with SAS to analyze crime data

Did you ever wonder why one place is more likely to experience burglaries than another? Maybe you want to move to a new neighborhood and make sure it has as much going for it as possible before you load up the truck. I found some data at the Universi...

Posted in SAS | Comments Off on Kaggle Digit Recoginizer: SAS k-Nearest Neighbor solution

kNN stands for k Nearest Neighbor. In data mining and predictive modeling, it refers to a memory-based (or instance-based) algorithm for classification and regression problems. It is a widely used algorithm with many successfully applications in medi...

Recently, I am working on coding in SAS for a set of regularized regressions and need to compute trace of the projection matrix:
S=X(X'X + \lambda I)^{-1}X'.
Trace of the project matrix S is a key concept in modern regression analysis. For example, ...
