The basic idea of the ROC curves for regression is to show model asymmetry. The RROC is a plot where on the x-axis we depict total over-estimation and on the y-axis total under-estimation.

plot_rroc(object, ...)

plotRROC(object, ...)

## Arguments

object An object of class 'auditor_model_residual' created with model_residual function. Other 'auditor_model_residual' objects to be plotted together.

A ggplot object.

## Details

For RROC curves we use a shift, which is an equivalent to the threshold for ROC curves. For each observation we calculate new prediction: $$\hat{y}'=\hat{y}+s$$ where s is the shift. Therefore, there are different error values for each shift: $$e_i = \hat{y_i}' - y_i$$

Over-estimation is calculated as: $$OVER= \sum(e_i|e_i>0)$$.

Under-estimation is calculated as: $$UNDER = \sum(e_i|e_i<0)$$.

The shift equals 0 is represented by a dot.

The Area Over the RROC Curve (AOC) equals to the variance of the errors multiplied by $$frac{n^2}{2}$$.
