Hi R helpers,

I'm preparing dataset to fir logistic regression model with lrm(). I have various cointinous and discrete variables and I would like to:

  1. Optimaly discretize continous variables (Optimaly means, maximizing information value - IV for example)
  2. Regroup discrete variables to achieve perhaps smaller number of level and better information value...

Please suggest if there is some package providing this or same functionality for discretization...

if there is no package plese suggest how to achieve this.

Many thanks helpers.
