IMSL_POLYPREDICT

The IMSL_POLYPREDICT function computes predicted values, confidence intervals, and diagnostics after fitting a polynomial regression model.

This routine requires an IDL Advanced Math and Stats license. For more information, contact your sales or technical support representative.

The IMSL_POLYPREDICT function assumes a polynomial model

yi = β 0 + β 1xi + ..., β kxki + εi i = 1, 2, ..., n

where the observed values of the yi’s constitute the response, the xi’s are the settings of the independent variable, the βj’s are the regression coefficients, and the εi’s are the errors that are independently distributed normal with mean zero and the following variance:

σ2/wi

Given the results of a polynomial regression, fitted using orthogonal polynomials and weights wi, IMSL_POLYPREDICT produces predicted values, residuals, confidence intervals, prediction intervals, and diagnostics for outliers and in influential cases.

Often, a predicted value and confidence interval are desired for a setting of the independent variable not used in computing the regression fit. This is accomplished by simply using a different x matrix than was used for the fit when calling IMSL_POLYPREDICT (IMSL_POLYREGRESS).

Results from IMSL_POLYREGRESS, which produces the fit using orthogonal polynomials, are used for input by the array predict_info. The fitted model from IMSL_POLYREGRESS is:

where the zi’s are settings of the independent variable x scaled to the interval [–2, 2] and the pj (z)’s are the orthogonal polynomials. The XTX matrix for this model is a diagonal matrix with elements dj. The case statistics are easily computed from this model and are equal to those from the original polynomial model with βj’s as the regression coefficients.

The leverage is computed as follows:

The estimated variance of:

The computation of the remainder of the case statistics follow easily from their definitions. See the IMSL introduction for the definition of the case diagnostics.

Often, predicted values and confidence intervals are desired for combinations of settings of the independent variables not used in computing the regression fit. This can be accomplished by defining a new data matrix. Since the information about the model fit is input in predict_info, it is not necessary to send in the data set used for the original calculation of the fit, i.e., only variable combinations for which predictions are desired need be entered in x.

Examples


Example 1

A polynomial model is fit to data using the IMSL_POLYREGRESS routine, then IMSL_POLYPREDICT is used to compute predicted values. The results are shown in the figure that follows.

x = [0, 0, 1, 1, 2, 2, 4, 4, 5, 5, 6, 6, 7, 7]
y = [58, 48, 58, 57, 61, 67, 70, 74, 77, 72, 81, 85, 84, 81]
 
; Define the sample data set. degree = 3
Coefs = IMSL_POLYREGRESS(x, y, degree, $
  Predict_Info = predict_info)
x2 = 8 * FINDGEN((100)/99)
; Call IMSL_POLYREGRESS using keyword Predict_Info.
predicted = IMSL_POLYPREDICT(predict_info, x2)
 
; Call IMSL_POLYPREDICT with Predict_Info.
PLOT, x, y, Psym = 4
 
; Plot the results.
OPLOT, x2, predicted

Example 2

A polynomial model is fit to the data discussed by Neter and Wasserman (1974, pp. 279-285). The data set contains the response variable y measuring coffee sales (in hundreds of gallons) and the number of self-service dispensers. Responses for 14 similar cafeterias are in the data set. First, a procedure is defined to print the ANOVA table. The results are shown in the figure that follows.
