Table 6 Prediction performance of the developed models

From: Predicting emergency department visits in a large teaching hospital

Model MAPE
Empty model 12.198%
First set of predictors 9.893%
Second set of predictors 9.536%
Refined set of predictors 8.684%
Calendar-only model 8.718%
  1. MAPE was measured using the mean average prediction error (average percentage the test predictions are off compared to the true number of daily ED visits); MAPE mean absolute percentage error
