A common form of prior knowledge in economic modelling concerns the monotonicity of relations between the dependent and explanatory variables. Monotonicity may also be an important requirement with a view toward explaining and justifying decisions based on such models. We explore the use of monotonicity constraints in classification tree algorithms. We… CONTINUE READING
