A note on discrimination and classification using both binary and continuous variables

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


The problem of discrimination between two groups and allocating the individual to one or the other, when the data consists of mixture of q binary and p continuous variables has been proposed by Kranzanowski. Sure type of data occur frequently in many biological, agricultural and social sciences experiment. Sometimes experimenter wants to classify the observations into one of the several multivariate populations. The aim of the present paper is to derive a discriminant function from a probablistic model for mixed binary and continuous variables for classifying an observation into one of several multivariate populations.
