Calculating the area under the ROC curve

The area under the ROC curve is easily calculated by applying the classification rule

An alternative approach, considered by Bradley (1997), is to construct an estimate of the ROC curve directly for specific classifiers by varying a threshold and then to use an integration rule (for example, the trapezium rule) to obtain an estimate of the area beneath the curve.

The data There are six data sets comprising measurements on two classes:

1. Cervical cancer. Six features, 117 patterns; classes are normal and abnormal cervical cell nuclei.

6. Heart disease 2. Eleven features, 261 patterns; classes are heart disease present and heart disease absent.

Incomplete patterns (patterns for which measurements on some features are missing) were removed from the data sets.
