StratifiedKFold(y, n_folds=3, indices=None, shuffle=False, random_state=None)¶
Stratified K-Folds cross validation iterator
Provides train/test indices to split data in train test sets.
This cross-validation object is a variation of KFold that returns stratified folds. The folds are made by preserving the percentage of samples for each class.
y : array-like, [n_samples]
Samples to split in K folds.
n_folds : int, default=3
Number of folds. Must be at least 2.
shuffle : boolean, optional
Whether to shuffle each stratification of the data before splitting into batches.
random_state : None, int or RandomState
Pseudo-random number generator state used for random sampling. If None, use default numpy RNG for shuffling
All the folds have size trunc(n_samples / n_folds), the last one has the complementary.
