Can We Obtain Dependency Plots for Single CART® Trees?

The short answer is YES such plots can be generated. Historically, we concluded that such graphs would normally not be that interesting as they would frequently be single step functions reflecting the fact that individual variables often appear only once or twice in a tree. Also, such graphs would not properly reflect the effect of a varible across most of its range of values. Thus, as of SPM® 7.0 CART® does not offer such plots. However, we can see what such plots would look like by using TreeNet® to grow a one-tree model. To do this, just set up a normal model, choose the TreeNet analysis method, and set the number of trees to be grown to 1 (see green arrow below). Note that we do not select the single tree in the lower left area. Because TreeNet does not grow and then prune, we request that TreeNet deliver a 12-node tree.
