If we consider two conditions:

  1. Number of data is huge
  2. Number of data is low

For what condition does boosting or bagging overfit more compared to the other one?


1 Answer 1


I read your question as: 'Is boosting more vulnerable to overfitting than bagging?'

Firstly, you need to understand that bagging decreases variance, while boosting decreases bias.

Also, to be noted that under-fitting means that the model has low variance and high bias and vice versa for overfitting.

So, boosting is more vulnerable to overfitting than bagging.
