Fitting multivariate responses using scalar trees


  • Jesús Barcena, María
  • Tusell, Fernando


We describe an algorithm for the fitting of multivariate responses using classification and regression trees, named the intersection-seeking algorithm. Although motivated by problems of record linkage and imputation of missing values in surveys, the algorithm may be used in other contexts.
