The classification and regression trees CART algorithm is probably the most popular algorithm for.
I used logistic regression, neural networks and decision trees. ROC-analysis is one method for evaluation of probabilistic classifications from several models, it is not tied to logistic regression and it uses all cut-offs from range [0,1].
The final subsets are called terminal or leaf nodes and the intermediate subsets are called internal nodes or split nodes.
But this was just a start of analysis. Imagine a tree that predicts the value of a house and the tree uses the size of the house as one of the split feature. The split occurs at square meters. Imagine user of a house price estimator using your decision tree model: They measure their house, come to the conclusion that the house has 99 square meters, enter it into the price calculator and get a prediction of Euro.
Cut-off value = (TTC / (BWM x CAF)) x CF Cut-off value = 1 μg/kg = ( μg/kg bw/day / (25 g/kg bw/day x )) x TTC: TTC value for DNA-reactive mutagenic or carcinogenic substances ( μg/kg. There’s a really great paper by Fayyad and Irani on how to do this (Multi-Interval Discretization of Continued Valued Attributes - PDF available here). First of all, there is a simple algorithm that works but is decision tree cut off value consider every observed value.
A decision tree “grows” by creating a cutoff point (often called a split) at a single point in the data that maximizes accuracy. The tree’s prediction is then based on the mean of the region that results from the input data. This would mean the tree could perfectly “predict” every value from the training dataset, but would perform.
