Query on scored label result(Linear Regression Model) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've used a Linear Regression Model to estimate a repayment of a loan; but the Scored label that I've obtained is Negative.

    What does it means? 

    Have I done something wrong on the setting or on selection of the variables?

    Thank you

  • Hi,

    There's nothing wrong with having negative predictions based on Linear Regression. However, if your outcome cannot be negative based on your use case, then I suggest that you change your model or approach to accommodate only positive values. You may consider applying log transformation. Hope this helps. Thanks.
