PREDICTION_BOUNDS

Purpose

The PREDICTION_BOUNDS function is for use only with generalized linear models. It returns an object with two NUMBER fields LOWER and UPPER. For a regression mining function, the bounds apply to value of the prediction. For a classification mining function, the bounds apply to the probability value. If the GLM was built using ridge regression, or if the covariance matrix is found to be singular during the build, then this function returns NULL for both fields.

Example

The following example returns the distribution of customers whose ages are predicted to be between 25 and 45 years with 98% confidence.

This example and the prerequisite data mining operations can be found in the demo file $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/demo/dmglcdem.sql. The example is presented here to illustrate the syntactic use of the function. General information on data mining demo files is available in Oracle Data Mining Administrator's Guide.
