Roman Hornung Ordinal Forests

  title={Roman Hornung Ordinal Forests},
  author={Roman Hornung},
The prediction of the values of ordinal response variables using covariate data is a relatively infrequent task in many application areas. Accordingly, ordinal response variables have gained comparably little attention in the literature on statistical prediction modeling. The random forest method is one of the strongest prediction methods for binary response variables and continuous response variables. Its basic, tree-based concept has led to several extensions including prediction methods for…

Internal estimates monitor error, strength, and correlation and these are used to show the response to increasing the number of features used in the forest, and are also applicable to regression.
Unbiased Recursive Partitioning: A Conditional Inference Framework
Recursive binary partitioning is a popular tool for regression analysis. Two fundamental problems of exhaustive search procedures usually applied to fit such models have been known for a long time:

Statistical methods for assessing agreement for ordinal data.
When choosing among various methods for agreement the weighted kappa-coefficient is probably the most useful for ordinal data, but several issues of concern arise and need to be taken into consideration when using these types of analyses.
