This example calculates the cross-validation error for four GLM models based on the Gaussian family.

Input

The input table, housing_train, is from GLM Example: Gaussian Distribution Analysis.

SQL Call

The LinkFunction and Intercept syntax elements specify the four GLM models to validate.

SELECT * FROM CrossValidation (
  ON housing_train AS InputTable
  OUT TABLE CrossValidationErrorTable (glmcvtable)
  USING
    Family ('gaussian')
    FunctionName ('glm')
    InputColumns ('price ','lotsize ','bedrooms ','bathrms ',
      'stories ','garagepl','driveway ','recroom ','fullbase ','gashw ',
      'airco ','prefarea','homestyle')
    CategoricalColumns ('driveway ','recroom ','fullbase ','gashw ',
      'airco ','prefarea','homestyle')
    LinkFunction ('identity','log','identity','log')
    Intercept ('t','f','f','t')
    FoldNum (3)
    CVParams ('LinkFunction','Intercept')
    Metric ('MSE')
) AS dt;

Output

The cross-validation error shows that the default link function, identity, performs better than the log link function.
