NCRN Virtual Seminar - Boosting Models for Edit, Imputation and Prediction of Multiple Response Outcomes

Speakers: John Abowd (Cornell) and Ping Li (Cornell and Rutgers)

Abstract: In this paper, we propose a statistical framework that generalizes the classical logit model to predict multiple responses (i.e., multi-label classification). We develop an effective implementation based on boosting and trees. For the NCRN seminar we present an application to editing and imputation in the multiple response race and ethnicity coding on the American Community Survey.
