sklearn.model_selection.GroupShuffleSplit

class sklearn.model_selection.GroupShuffleSplit(n_splits=5, test_size='default', train_size=None, random_state=None)[source]

Shuffle-Group(s)-Out cross-validation iterator

Provides randomized train/test indices to split data according to a third-party provided group. This group information can be used to encode arbitrary domain specific stratifications of the samples as integers.

For instance the groups could be the year of collection of the samples and thus allow for cross-validation against time-based splits.

The difference between LeavePGroupsOut and GroupShuffleSplit is that the former generates splits using all subsets of size p unique groups, whereas GroupShuffleSplit generates a user-determined number of random test splits, each with a user-determined fraction of unique groups.

For example, a less computationally intensive alternative to LeavePGroupsOut(p=10) would be GroupShuffleSplit(test_size=10, n_splits=100).

Note: The parameters test_size and train_size refer to groups, and not to samples, as in ShuffleSplit.

Parameters:

n_splits : int (default 5)

Number of re-shuffling & splitting iterations.

test_size : float, int, None, optional

If float, should be between 0.0 and 1.0 and represent the proportion of the dataset to include in the test split. If int, represents the absolute number of test samples. If None, the value is set to the complement of the train size. By default, the value is set to 0.2. The default will change in version 0.21. It will remain 0.2 only if train_size is unspecified, otherwise it will complement the specified train_size.

train_size : float, int, or None, default is None

If float, should be between 0.0 and 1.0 and represent the proportion of the groups to include in the train split. If int, represents the absolute number of train groups. If None, the value is automatically set to the complement of the test size.

random_state : int, RandomState instance or None, optional (default=None)

If int, random_state is the seed used by the random number generator; If RandomState instance, random_state is the random number generator; If None, the random number generator is the RandomState instance used by np.random.

Methods

get_n_splits([X, y, groups]) Returns the number of splitting iterations in the cross-validator
split(X[, y, groups]) Generate indices to split data into training and test set.
__init__(n_splits=5, test_size='default', train_size=None, random_state=None)[source]
get_n_splits(X=None, y=None, groups=None)[source]

Returns the number of splitting iterations in the cross-validator

Parameters:

X : object

Always ignored, exists for compatibility.

y : object

Always ignored, exists for compatibility.

groups : object

Always ignored, exists for compatibility.

Returns:

n_splits : int

Returns the number of splitting iterations in the cross-validator.

split(X, y=None, groups=None)[source]

Generate indices to split data into training and test set.

Parameters:

X : array-like, shape (n_samples, n_features)

Training data, where n_samples is the number of samples and n_features is the number of features.

y : array-like, shape (n_samples,)

The target variable for supervised learning problems.

groups : array-like, with shape (n_samples,), optional

Group labels for the samples used while splitting the dataset into train/test set.

Returns:

train : ndarray

The training set indices for that split.

test : ndarray

The testing set indices for that split.
