I'm trying to create N balanced random subsamples of my large unbalanced dataset. Any pointers to code that does this? These subsamples should be random and can be overlapping as I feed each to separate classifier in a very large ensemble of classifiers. In Weka there is tool called spreadsubsample, is there equivalent in sklearn?

Here is my first version that seems to be working fine, feel free to copy or make suggestions on how it could be more efficient I have quite a long experience with programming in general but not that long with python or numpy. For anyone trying to make the above work with a Pandas DataFrame, you need to make a couple of changes:.

There now exists a full-blown python package to address imbalanced data. A version for pandas Series :. This type of data splitting is not provided among the built-in data splitting techniques exposed in sklearn. What seems similar to your needs is sklearn. StratifiedShuffleSplitwhich can generate subsamples of any size while retaining the structure of the whole dataset, i.

Here is a version of the above code that works for multiclass groups in my tested case group 0, 1, 2, 3, 4.

## Random Forest Classifier Example

This also returns the indices so they can be used for other datasets and to keep track of how frequently each data set was used helpful for training. Below is my python implementation for creating balanced data copy. Assumptions: 1. I found the best solutions here. Simply select rows in each class with duplicates using the following code.

Although it is already answered, I stumbled upon your question looking for something similar. After some more research, I believe sklearn. StratifiedKFold can be used for this purpose:.Please cite us if you use the software.

Estimator score method : Estimators have a score method providing a default evaluation criterion for the problem they are designed to solve. GridSearchCV rely on an internal scoring strategy. This is discussed in the section The scoring parameter: defining model evaluation rules. Metric functions : The metrics module implements functions assessing prediction error for specific purposes.

These metrics are detailed in sections on Classification metricsMultilabel ranking metricsRegression metrics and Clustering metrics. Finally, Dummy estimators are useful to get a baseline value of those metrics for random predictions. For the most common use cases, you can designate a scorer object with the scoring parameter; the table below shows all possible values.

All scorer objects follow the convention that higher return values are better than lower return values. Thus metrics which measure the distance between the model and the data, like metrics. The values listed by the ValueError exception correspond to the functions measuring prediction accuracy described in the following sections. The scorer objects for those functions are stored in the dictionary sklearn.

The module sklearn. In such cases, you need to generate an appropriate scoring object. That function converts metrics into callables that can be used for model evaluation. If a loss, the output of the python function is negated by the scorer object, conforming to the cross validation convention that scorers return higher values for better models.

The default value is False. For a callable to be a scorer, it needs to meet the protocol specified by the following two rules:. It can be called with parameters estimator, X, ywhere estimator is the model that should be evaluated, X is validation data, and y is the ground truth target for X in the supervised case or None in the unsupervised case.

It returns a floating point number that quantifies the estimator prediction quality on Xwith reference to y.

Again, by convention higher numbers are better, so if your scorer returns loss, that value should be negated. While defining the custom scoring function alongside the calling function should work out of the box with the default joblib backend lokyimporting it from another module will be a more robust approach and work independently of the joblib backend. There are two ways to specify multiple scoring metrics for the scoring parameter:. Note that the dict values can either be scorer functions or one of the predefined metric strings.

Currently only those scorer functions that return a single score can be passed inside the dict. Scorer functions that return multiple values are not permitted and will require a wrapper to return a single metric:. The sklearn. Some metrics might require probability estimates of the positive class, confidence values, or binary decisions values. In the following sub-sections, we will describe each of those functions, preceded by some notes on common API and metric definition.

Some metrics are essentially defined for binary classification tasks e. In extending a binary metric to multiclass or multilabel problems, the data is treated as a collection of binary problems, one for each class.

There are then a number of ways to average binary metric calculations across the set of classes, each of which may be useful in some scenario. Where available, you should select among these using the average parameter. In problems where infrequent classes are nonetheless important, macro-averaging may be a means of highlighting their performance. On the other hand, the assumption that all classes are equally important is often untrue, such that macro-averaging will over-emphasize the typically low performance on an infrequent class.

Rather than summing the metric per class, this sums the dividends and divisors that make up the per-class metrics to calculate an overall quotient. Micro-averaging may be preferred in multilabel settings, including multiclass classification where a majority class is to be ignored.

While multiclass data is provided to the metric, like binary targets, as an array of class labels, multilabel data is specified as an indicator matrix, in which cell [i, j] has value 1 if sample i has label j and value 0 otherwise.

In multilabel classification, the function returns the subset accuracy.If you want a good summary of the theory and uses of random forests, I suggest you check out their guide. In the tutorial below, I annotate, correct, and expand on a short code example of random forests they present at the end of the article. Specifically, I 1 update the code so it runs in the latest version of pandas and Python, 2 write detailed comments explaining what is happening in each step, and 3 expand the code in a number of ways.

The data for this tutorial is famous. Called, the iris datasetit contains four variables measuring various parts of iris flowers of three related species, and then a fourth variable with the species name.

The reason it is so famous in machine learning and statistics communities is because the data requires very little preprocessing i. We have done it! We have officially trained our random forest Classifier! The Classifier model itself is stored in the clf variable.

If you have been following along, you will know we only trained our classifier on part of the data, leaving the rest out. This is, in my humble opinion, the most important part of machine learning. Because by leaving out a portion of the data, we have a set of data to test the accuracy of our model! What are you looking at above? Remember that we coded each of the three species of plant as 0, 1, or 2.

What the list of numbers above is showing you is what species our model predicts each plant is based on the the sepal length, sepal width, petal length, and petal width. How confident is the classifier about each plant? We can see that too. There are three species of plant, thus [ 1. Taking another example, [ 0.

Because 90 is greater than 10, the classifier predicts the plant is the first class. That looks pretty good! At least for the first five observations. A confusion matrix can be, no pun intended, a little confusing to interpret at first, but it is actually very straightforward.

The columns are the species we predicted for the test data and the rows are the actual species for the test data.

So, if we take the top row, we can wee that we predicted all 13 setosa plants in the test data perfectly.Read more in the User Guide. When floatit corresponds to the desired ratio of the number of samples in the minority class over the number of samples in the majority class after resampling. Therefore, the ratio is expressed as where is the number of samples in the minority class after resampling and is the number of samples in the majority class.

I have a fairly large CSV file containing amazon review data which I read into a pandas data frame. I want to split the data train-test but while doing so I want to ensure that the split data is proportionally representing the values of one column Categoriesi.

As I'm relatively new to python I cant figure out what I'm doing wrong or whether this code will stratify based on column categories. It seems to work fine when i remove the stratify option as well as the categories column from train-test split.
