PLS predict.

Post by yadgarhamakhan » Sat Feb 23, 2019 2:23 pm

Dear Prof

I hope you are doing well.

I would ask kindly more advise about the followings:

1- When I run PLS predict, I get 4 results, I would to know which result out of that 4 results should be reported, and I need rule-of-thumb of PLS predict.

2- As you can see in the tables below for example (RMSE, MAE, MAPE) for EE10 in the PLS table have valued but in the LM table (RMSE, MAE, MAPE) for EE most of them are Zero, Q Square is 1.
Also, Some indicators are not in the results,I do not understand why

I also do not understand why the priority is like that!

How I can interpret that result?

3- If I run PLS Predict, DO I still have to run Blindfolding and report q2 values and q2 effect sizes?!


I would like to thank you very much for your kind support and always be grateful to you.

Best regards
