I agree with your comment, that's why we don't want to give a mean or a
median of variables importance of all single models selected as variable
As for ensemble models evaluation, we have to consider ensemble models
as "true" models.. So we have to apply the same methodology than for the
We must randomise a variable, calculate all single models predictions
with this 'new set of data', combine predictions to build our ensemble
model, calculate the correlation between the 'true' predictions of our
'ensemble model' and the ones with a randomised variable....Do it
several times for all variables and all models.... It will be really
time consuming but might be interesting in some cases.
I guess that calculating variables importance according to methodology
describes above will give you a quite interpretable value...
