Scatter plot of effect estimates with the stochastic procedure of RITI based on one dataset. Based on one simulated dataset generated in the setting of Fig. 7, 100 classification datasets and the corresponding effect estimates (denoted by red dot) were obtained with the stochastic procedure of the RITI classification method. The short black solid lines represent the mean value of the 100 effect estimates. The effect estimates with the deterministic procedure of the RITI classification method (denoted by *) and the benchmark method (denoted by ) based on the same dataset were also illustrated for comparison purposes. Methods used on the top panel (a): exCox3-RITI (Stochastic), exCox3-RITI (Deterministic), and exCox4 (Benchmark); the bottom panel (b): LM3-RITI (Stochastic), LM3-RITI (Deterministic), and LM4 (Benchmark)
