A team of researchers collects and publishes detailed information about factors that affect heart disease. Variables include age, sex, cholesterol levels, maximum heart rate, and more. This example is based on a public data set that gives detailed information about heart disease. The original data are from archive.ics.uci.edu.
The researcher can use the gradient boosted classification tree model to predict response class probabilities for new observations.
This example uses the dataset from Fit Model, but prediction is also available when you use Discover Key Predictors to create the model.
|Rest Blood Pressure||140||140|
|Max Heart Rate||150||165|
|Chest Pain Type||2||1|
|Fasting Blood Sugar||True||True|
Minitab uses the gradient boosted classification trees in the results to estimate the class probability of a heart disease event for the a set of prediction values. The researchers find that the probability of a heart disease event using the specified settings is approximately 0.185 for the first set and 0.55 for the second set.
