Conventional techniques for clinical decision support systems are based on a single classifier or simple combination of these classifiers used for disease diagnosis and prediction. Recently much attention has been paid on improving the performance of disease prediction by using ensemble-based methods. In this paper, we use multiple ensemble classification techniques for diabetes datasets. Three types of decision trees ID3, C4.5 and CART are used as the base classifiers. The ensemble techniques used are Majority Voting, Adaboost, Bayesian Boosting, Stacking and Bagging. Two benchmark diabetes datasets are used from UCI and Bio Stat repositories respectively. Experimental results and evaluation show that Bagging ensemble technique shows better performance as compared to single as well as other ensemble techniques.
