PROC QUANTSELECT supports a variety of fit statistics that you can specify as criteria for the CHOOSE=, SELECT=, and STOP= methodoptions in the MODEL statement.
The following fit statistics are available for single quantile effect selection:
applies the Akaike’s information criterion (Akaike, 1981; Darlington, 1968; Judge et al., 1985).
applies the corrected Akaike’s information criterion (Hurvich and Tsai, 1989).
applies the Schwarz Bayesian information criterion (Schwarz, 1978; Judge et al., 1985).
specifies the significance level of a statistic used to assess an effect’s contribution to the fit when it is added to or removed from a model. LR1 specifies likelihood ratio Type I, and LR2 specifies the likelihood ratio Type II. By default, the LR1 statistic is applied.
applies the adjusted quantile regression R statistic.
applies the average check loss for the validation data.
Table 78.10 provides formulas and definitions for these fit statistics.
