Validation Data Set
Use this field to specify the name and complete path to the input SAS data set to use as an independent validation of the statistics and as a guide for selecting a subtree from the subtree sequence.
The Model Results and Node Statistics show statistics from both the training and validation data for comparison. The validation data does not change the tree . The data set must have the same predictor variables as the Input SAS Data Set . Only observations with a nonmissing dependent variable are used.
For detailed information about the files and data sets used or created by JMP Life Sciences software, see Files and Data Sets .
To Specify the Validation SAS Data Set:
The method used for this specification can vary depending on whether JMP is connected to SAS on your local machine or connected to SAS on a server. You should refer to the Specifying Folders, Files, and Data Sets documentation for detailed information.
