sklearn.cross_validation.LeavePLabelOut

class sklearn.cross_validation.LeavePLabelOut(labels, p, indices=None)[source]

Leave-P-Label_Out cross-validation iterator

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

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

The difference between LeavePLabelOut and LeaveOneLabelOut is that the former builds the test sets with all the samples assigned to p different values of the labels while the latter uses samples all assigned the same labels.

Parameters:

labels : array-like of int with shape (n_samples,)

Arbitrary domain-specific stratification of the data to be used to draw the splits.

p : int

Number of samples to leave out in the test split.

Examples

>>> from sklearn import cross_validation
>>> X = np.array([[1, 2], [3, 4], [5, 6]])
>>> y = np.array([1, 2, 1])
>>> labels = np.array([1, 2, 3])
>>> lpl = cross_validation.LeavePLabelOut(labels, p=2)
>>> len(lpl)
3
>>> print(lpl)
sklearn.cross_validation.LeavePLabelOut(labels=[1 2 3], p=2)
>>> for train_index, test_index in lpl:
...    print("TRAIN:", train_index, "TEST:", test_index)
...    X_train, X_test = X[train_index], X[test_index]
...    y_train, y_test = y[train_index], y[test_index]
...    print(X_train, X_test, y_train, y_test)
