Introduction to Predictive Modeling with Examples Nationwide Insurance Company, November 2 D. A. Dickey

Cool Nerdy “Analytics” = “Statistics” “Predictive Modeling” = “Regression” Part 1: Simple Linear Regression

If the Life Line is long and deep, then this represents a long life full of vitality and health. A short line, if strong and deep, also shows great vitality in your life and the ability to overcome health problems. However, if the line is short and shallow, then your life may have the tendency to be controlled by others http://www.ofesite.com/spirit/palm/lines/linelife.htm

Wilson & Mather JAMA 229 (1974) X=life line length Y=age at death Result: Predicted Age at Death = 79.24 – 1.367(lifeline) (Is this “real”??? Is this repeatable???) proc sgplot; scatter Y=age X=line; reg Y=age X=line; run ;

We Use LEAST SQUARES Squared residuals sum to 9609

Error sum of squares SSq versus slope and intercept (truncated at SSq=9700)

“Best” line is the one that minimizes sum of squared residuals. Best for this sample – is it the true relationship for everyone? SAS PROC REG will compute it. What other lines might be the true line for everyone?? Probably not the purple one. Red one has slope 0 (no effect). Is red line unreasonable? Can we reject H 0 :slope is 0?

Simulation: Age at Death = 67 + 0(life line) + e Error e has normal distribution mean 0 variance 200. Simulate 20 cases with n= 50 bodies each. NOTE: Regression equations : Age(rep:1) = 80.56253 - 1.345896*line. Age(rep:2) = 61.76292 + 0.745289*line. Age(rep:3) = 72.14366 - 0.546996*line. Age(rep:4) = 95.85143 - 3.087247*line. Age(rep:5) = 67.21784 - 0.144763*line. Age(rep:6) = 71.0178 - 0.332015*line. Age(rep:7) = 54.9211 + 1.541255*line. Age(rep:8) = 69.98573 - 0.472335*line. Age(rep:9) = 85.73131 - 1.240894*line. Age(rep:10) = 59.65101 + 0.548992*line. Age(rep:11) = 59.38712 + 0.995162*line. Age(rep:12) = 72.45697 - 0.649575*line. Age(rep:13) = 78.99126 - 0.866334*line. Age(rep:14) = 45.88373 + 2.283475*line. Age(rep:15) = 59.28049 + 0.790884*line. Age(rep:16) = 73.6395 - 0.814287*line. Age(rep:17) = 70.57868 - 0.799404*line. Age(rep:18) = 72.91134 - 0.821219*line. Age(rep:19) = 55.46755 + 1.238873*line. Age(rep:20) = 63.82712 + 0.776548*line. Predicted Age at Death = 79.24 – 1.367(lifeline) Would NOT be unusual if there is no true relationship.

Conclusion: Estimated slopes vary Standard deviation of estimated slopes = “Standard error” (estimated) Compute t = (estimate – hypothesized)/standard error p-value is probability of larger |t| when hypothesis is correct (e.g. 0 slope) p-value is sum of two tail areas. Traditionally p<0.05  hypothesized value is wrong. p>0.05 is inconclusive. Distribution of t Under H 0

Conclusion: insufficient evidence against the hypothesis of no linear relationship. H0:H1:H0:H1: H 0 : Innocence H 1 : Guilt Beyond reasonable doubt P<0.05 H 0 : True slope is 0 (no association) H 1 : True slope is not 0 P=0.3965

Simulation: Age at Death = 67 + 0(life line) + e Error e has normal distribution mean 0 variance 200.  WHY? Simulate 20 cases with n= 50 bodies each. Want estimate of variability around the true line. True variance is Use sums of squared residuals (SS). Sum of squared residuals from the mean is “SS(total)” 9755 Sum of squared residuals around the line is “SS(error)” 9609 (1) SS(total)-SS(error) is SS(model) = 146 (2) Variance estimate is SS(error)/(degrees of freedom) = 200 (3) SS(model)/SS(total) is R 2, i.e. proportion of variablity “explained” by the model.

Part 2: Multiple Regression Issues: (1) Testing joint importance versus individual significance (2) Prediction versus modeling individual effects (3) Collinearity (correlation among inputs) Example: Hypothetical company’s sales Y depend on TV advertising X 1 and Radio Advertising X 2. Y =  0 +  1 X 1 +  2 X 2 +e Jointly critical (can’t omit both!!) Two engine plane can still fly if engine #1 fails Two engine plane can still fly if engine #2 fails Neither is critical individually

TV approximately equal to radio so, approximately Estimated Sales = 531 + 9.7 TV or Estimated Sales = 531 + 9.7 radio

Setting TV = radio (approximate relationship) Estimated Sales = 531 + 9.7 TV is this the BEST TV line? Estimated Sales = 531 + 9.7 radio is this the BEST radio line? Proc Reg Data=Stores; Model Sales = TV; Model Sales = radio; run;

Summary: Good predictions given by Sales = 531 + 5.0 x TV + 4.7 x Radio or Sales = 479 + 9.7 x TV or Sales = 612 + 9.6 x Radio or (lots of others) Why the confusion? The evil Multicollinearity!! (correlated X’s)

Those Mysterious “Degrees of Freedom” (DF) First Martian  information about average height 0 information about variation. 2 nd Martian gives first piece of information (DF) about error variance around mean. n Martians n-1 DF for error (variation)

Contrast: TV advertising looses significance when radio is added. IQ gains significance when study time is added. Model for Grades: Predicted Grade = 0.74 + 0.47 x IQ + 2.10 x Study Time Question: Does an extra hour of study really deliver 2.10 points for everyone regardless of IQ? Current model only allows this.

“Interaction” model: Predicted Grade = 72.21  0.13 x IQ  4.11 x Study Time + 0.053 x IQ x Study Time = (72.21  0.13 x IQ )+(  4.11 + 0.053 x IQ )x Study Time IQ = 102 predicts Grade = (72.21-13.26)+(5.41-4.11) x Study Time = 58.95+ 1.30 x Study Time IQ = 122 predicts Grade = (72.21-15.86)+(6.47-4.11) x Study Time = 56.35 + 2.36 x Study Time proc reg; model Grade = IQ Study_Time IQ_S; Sum of Mean Source DF Squares Square F Value Pr > F Model 3 610.81033 203.60344 26.22 0.0043 Error 4 31.06467 7.76617 Corrected Total 7 641.87500 Root MSE 2.78678 R-Square 0.9516 Parameter Standard Variable DF Estimate Error t Value Pr > |t| Intercept 1 72.20608 54.07278 1.34 0.2527 IQ 1 -0.13117 0.45530 -0.29 0.7876 Study_Time 1 -4.11107 4.52430 -0.91 0.4149 IQ_S 1 0.05307 0.03858 1.38 0.2410

(1)Adding interaction makes everything insignificant (individually) ! (2)Do we need to omit insignificant terms until only significant ones remain? (3)Has an acquitted defendant proved his innocence? (4)Common sense trumps statistics! Slope = 1.30 Slope = 2.36

Rule of thumb: Ratio 1 is perfect, >30 problematic. Spread on long axis is 27.6 times that on short axis. Variance Inflation Factor (1) Regress predictor i on all the others getting r-square: R i 2 (2) VIF is 1/(1- R i 2 ) for variable i (measures collinearity). (3) VIF > 10 is a problem.

Part 4: Classification Variables (dummy variables, indicator variables) Predicted Accidents = 1181 + 2579 X 11 X 11 is 1 in November, 0 elsewhere. Interpretation: In November, predict 1181+2579(1) = 3660. In any other month predict 1181 + 2579(0) = 1181. 1181 is average of other months. 2579 is added November effect (vs. average of others) Model for NC Crashes involving Deer: Proc reg data=deer; model deer = X11; Analysis of Variance Sum of Mean Source DF Squares Square F Value Pr > F Model 1 30473250 30473250 90.45 <.0001 Error 58 19539666 336891 Corrected Total 59 50012916 Root MSE 580.42294 R-Square 0.6093 Parameter Standard Variable Label DF Estimate Error t Value Pr > |t| Intercept Intercept 1 1181.09091 78.26421 15.09 <.0001 X11 1 2578.50909 271.11519 9.51 <.0001

Part 5 Logistic Regression The problem: response is binary yes or no, accident or no accident, claim or no claim, at fault, not at fault Prediction is prediction of probability (of fault for example)

Logistic idea: Map p in (0,1) to L in whole real line, p=probability of fabric igniting. Use L = ln(p/(1-p)) Model L as linear in flame exposure time. Predicted L = a + b(time) Given temperature X, compute a+bX then p = e L /(1+e L ) p(i) = e a+bXi /(1+e a+bXi ) Write p(i) if response, 1-p(i) if not Multiply all n of these together, get function Q(a,b), find a,b to maximize.

Example: Ignition Flame exposure time = X Ignited Y=1, did not ignite Y=0 – Y=1, X = 11, 12 14, 15, 17, 25, 30 – Y=0, X= 3, 5, 9 10, 13, 16 Q=(1-p)(1-p)(1-p)(1-p)pp(1-p)pp(1-p)ppp P’s all different p=f(exposure time) Find a,b to maximize likelihood Q(a,b)

Likelihood function (Q) -2.6 0.23

Example: Shuttle Missions O-rings failed in Challenger disaster Low temperature Prior flights “erosion” and “blowby” in O-rings Feature: Temperature at liftoff Target: problem (1) - erosion or blowby vs. no problem (0)
