## Examples

### Validate a Compact Credit Scorecard Model

Compute model validation statistics for a compact credit scorecard model.

To create a `compactCreditScorecard`

object, you must first develop a credit scorecard model using a `creditscorecard`

object.

Create a `creditscorecard`

object using the `CreditCardData.mat`

file to load the `data`

(using a dataset from Refaat 2011).

load CreditCardData.mat sc = creditscorecard(data, 'IDVar','CustID')

sc = creditscorecard with properties: GoodLabel: 0 ResponseVar: 'status' WeightsVar: '' VarNames: {'CustID' 'CustAge' 'TmAtAddress' 'ResStatus' 'EmpStatus' 'CustIncome' 'TmWBank' 'OtherCC' 'AMBalance' 'UtilRate' 'status'} NumericPredictors: {'CustAge' 'TmAtAddress' 'CustIncome' 'TmWBank' 'AMBalance' 'UtilRate'} CategoricalPredictors: {'ResStatus' 'EmpStatus' 'OtherCC'} BinMissingData: 0 IDVar: 'CustID' PredictorVars: {'CustAge' 'TmAtAddress' 'ResStatus' 'EmpStatus' 'CustIncome' 'TmWBank' 'OtherCC' 'AMBalance' 'UtilRate'} Data: [1200x11 table]

Perform automatic binning using the default options. By default, `autobinning`

uses the `Monotone`

algorithm.

sc = autobinning(sc);

Fit the model.

sc = fitmodel(sc);

`sc = formatpoints(sc, 'PointsOddsAndPDO',[500,2,50]);`

Convert the `creditscorecard`

object into a `compactCreditScorecard`

object. A `compactCreditScorecard`

object is a lightweight version of a `creditscorecard`

object that is used for deployment purposes.

csc = compactCreditScorecard(sc);

Validate the compact credit scorecard model by generating the CAP, ROC, and KS plots. This example uses the training `data`

. However, you can use any validation data, as long as:

The data has the same predictor names and predictor types as the data used to create the initial

`creditscorecard`

object.The data has a response column with the same name as the

`'ResponseVar'`

property in the initial`creditscorecard`

object.The data has a weights column (if weights were used to train the model) with the same name as

`'WeightsVar'`

property in the initial`creditscorecard`

object.

### Validate a Compact Credit Scorecard Model with Weights

Compute model validation statistics for a compact credit scorecard model with weights.

To create a `compactCreditScorecard`

object, you must first develop a credit scorecard model using a `creditscorecard`

object.

Use the `CreditCardData.mat`

file to load the data (`dataWeights`

) that contains a column (`RowWeights`

) for the weights (using a dataset from Refaat 2011).

`load CreditCardData.mat`

Create a `creditscorecard`

object using the optional name-value pair argument `'WeightsVar'`

.

sc = creditscorecard(dataWeights,'IDVar','CustID','WeightsVar','RowWeights')

sc = creditscorecard with properties: GoodLabel: 0 ResponseVar: 'status' WeightsVar: 'RowWeights' VarNames: {'CustID' 'CustAge' 'TmAtAddress' 'ResStatus' 'EmpStatus' 'CustIncome' 'TmWBank' 'OtherCC' 'AMBalance' 'UtilRate' 'RowWeights' 'status'} NumericPredictors: {'CustAge' 'TmAtAddress' 'CustIncome' 'TmWBank' 'AMBalance' 'UtilRate'} CategoricalPredictors: {'ResStatus' 'EmpStatus' 'OtherCC'} BinMissingData: 0 IDVar: 'CustID' PredictorVars: {'CustAge' 'TmAtAddress' 'ResStatus' 'EmpStatus' 'CustIncome' 'TmWBank' 'OtherCC' 'AMBalance' 'UtilRate'} Data: [1200x12 table]

Perform automatic binning. By default, `autobinning`

uses the `Monotone`

algorithm.

sc = autobinning(sc)

sc = creditscorecard with properties: GoodLabel: 0 ResponseVar: 'status' WeightsVar: 'RowWeights' VarNames: {'CustID' 'CustAge' 'TmAtAddress' 'ResStatus' 'EmpStatus' 'CustIncome' 'TmWBank' 'OtherCC' 'AMBalance' 'UtilRate' 'RowWeights' 'status'} NumericPredictors: {'CustAge' 'TmAtAddress' 'CustIncome' 'TmWBank' 'AMBalance' 'UtilRate'} CategoricalPredictors: {'ResStatus' 'EmpStatus' 'OtherCC'} BinMissingData: 0 IDVar: 'CustID' PredictorVars: {'CustAge' 'TmAtAddress' 'ResStatus' 'EmpStatus' 'CustIncome' 'TmWBank' 'OtherCC' 'AMBalance' 'UtilRate'} Data: [1200x12 table]

Format the unscaled points.

`sc = formatpoints(sc,'PointsOddsAndPDO',[500,2,50]);`

Convert the `creditscorecard`

object into a `compactCreditScorecard`

object. A `compactCreditScorecard`

object is a lightweight version of a `creditscorecard`

object that is used for deployment purposes.

csc = compactCreditScorecard(sc);

Validate the compact credit scorecard model by generating the CAP, ROC, and KS plots. When you use the optional name-value pair argument `'WeightsVar'`

to specify observation (sample) weights in the original `creditscorecard`

object, the `T`

table for `validatemodel`

uses statistics, sums, and cumulative sums that are weighted counts.

This example uses the training data (`dataWeights`

). However, you can use any validation data, as long as:

The data has the same predictor names and predictor types as the data used to create the initial

`creditscorecard`

object.The data has a response column with the same name as the

`'ResponseVar'`

property in the initial`creditscorecard`

object.The data has a weights column (if weights were used to train the model) with the same name as the

`'WeightsVar'`

property in the initial`creditscorecard`

object.

[Stats,T] = validatemodel(csc,dataWeights,'Plot',{'CAP','ROC','KS'});

### Validate a Compact Credit Score Card Model** **When Using the '`BinMissingData'`

Option

Compute model validation statistics and assign points for missing data when using the `'BinMissingData'`

option.

Predictors in a

`creditscorecard`

object that have missing data in the training set have an explicit bin for`<missing>`

with corresponding points in the final scorecard. These points are computed from the Weight-of-Evidence (WOE) value for the`<missing>`

bin and the logistic model coefficients. For scoring purposes, these points are assigned to missing values and to out-of-range values, and after you convert the`creditscorecard`

object to a`compactCreditScorecard`

object, you can use the final score to compute model validation statistics with`validatemodel`

.Predictors in a

`creditscorecard`

object with no missing data in the training set have no`<missing>`

bin, so no WOE can be estimated from the training data. By default, the points for missing and out-of-range values are set to`NaN`

resulting in a score of`NaN`

when running`score`

. For predictors in a`creditscorecard`

object that have no explicit`<missing>`

bin, use the name-value argument`'Missing'`

in`formatpoints`

to specify how the function treats missing data for scoring purposes. After converting the`creditscorecard`

object to a`compactCreditScorecard`

object, you can use the final score to compute model validation statistics with`validatemodel`

.

To create a `compactCreditScorecard`

object, you must first develop a credit scorecard model using a `creditscorecard`

object.

Create a `creditscorecard`

object using the `CreditCardData.mat`

file to load `dataMissing`

, a table that contains missing values.

```
load CreditCardData.mat
head(dataMissing,5)
```

Use `creditscorecard`

with the name-value argument `'BinMissingData'`

set to `true`

to bin the missing numeric or categorical data in a separate bin. Apply automatic binning.

sc = creditscorecard(dataMissing,'IDVar','CustID','BinMissingData',true); sc = autobinning(sc); disp(sc)

creditscorecard with properties: GoodLabel: 0 ResponseVar: 'status' WeightsVar: '' VarNames: {'CustID' 'CustAge' 'TmAtAddress' 'ResStatus' 'EmpStatus' 'CustIncome' 'TmWBank' 'OtherCC' 'AMBalance' 'UtilRate' 'status'} NumericPredictors: {'CustAge' 'TmAtAddress' 'CustIncome' 'TmWBank' 'AMBalance' 'UtilRate'} CategoricalPredictors: {'ResStatus' 'EmpStatus' 'OtherCC'} BinMissingData: 1 IDVar: 'CustID' PredictorVars: {'CustAge' 'TmAtAddress' 'ResStatus' 'EmpStatus' 'CustIncome' 'TmWBank' 'OtherCC' 'AMBalance' 'UtilRate'} Data: [1200x11 table]

To make any negative age or income information invalid or "out of range," set a minimum value of zero for `'CustAge'`

and `'CustIncome'`

. For scoring and probability-of-default computations, out-of-range values are given the same points as missing values.

sc = modifybins(sc,'CustAge','MinValue',0); sc = modifybins(sc,'CustIncome','MinValue',0);

Display bin information for numeric data for `'CustAge'`

that includes missing data in a separate bin labelled `<missing>`

.

```
bi = bininfo(sc,'CustAge');

Use `fitmodel`

to fit a logistic regression model using Weight of Evidence (WOE) data. `fitmodel`

internally transforms all the predictor variables into WOE values by using the bins found in the automatic binning process. `fitmodel`

then fits a logistic regression model using a stepwise method (by default). For predictors that have missing data, there is an explicit `<missing>`

bin, with a corresponding WOE value computed from the data. When you use `fitmodel`

, the function applies the corresponding WOE value for the `<missing>`

bin when performing the WOE transformation.

Notice that points for the `<missing>`

bin for `'CustAge'`

and `'ResStatus'`

are explicitly shown (as `64.9836`

and `74.1250`

, respectively). The function computes these points from the WOE value for the `<missing>`

bin and the logistic model coefficients.

For predictors that have no missing data in the training set, there is no explicit `<missing>`

bin during the training of the model. By default, `displaypoints`

reports the points as `NaN`

for missing data resulting in a score of `NaN`

when you use `score`

. For these predictors, use the name-value pair argument `'Missing'`

in `formatpoints`

to indicate how missing data should be treated for scoring purposes.

Use `compactCreditScorecard`

to convert the `creditscorecard`

object into a `compactCreditScorecard`

object. A `compactCreditScorecard`

object is a lightweight version of a `creditscorecard`

object that is used for deployment purposes.

csc = compactCreditScorecard(sc);

For the purpose of illustration, take a few rows from the original data as test data and introduce some missing data. Also introduce some invalid, or out-of-range, values. For numeric data, values below the minimum (or above the maximum) are considered invalid, such as a negative value for age (recall that in a previous step, you set `'MinValue'`

to `0`

for `'CustAge'`

and `'CustIncome'`

). For categorical data, invalid values are categories not explicitly included in the scorecard, for example, a residential status not previously mapped to scorecard categories, such as "House", or a meaningless string such as "abc123."

This example uses a very small validation data set only to illustrate the scoring of rows with missing and out-of-range values and the relationship between scoring and model validation.

tdata = dataMissing(11:200,mdl.PredictorNames); % Keep only the predictors retained in the model tdata.status = dataMissing.status(11:200); % Copy the response variable value, needed for validation purposes % Set some missing values tdata.CustAge(1) = NaN; tdata.ResStatus(2) = missing; tdata.EmpStatus(3) = missing; tdata.CustIncome(4) = NaN; % Set some invalid values tdata.CustAge(5) = -100; tdata.ResStatus(6) = 'House'; tdata.EmpStatus(7) = 'Freelancer'; tdata.CustIncome(8) = -1; disp(tdata(1:10,:))

## Output Arguments

`Stats`

— Validation measures

table

Validation measures, returned as a
`4`

-by-`2`

table. The first
column, `'Measure'`

`N`

is equal to the total number of unique scores,
that is, scores without duplicates.

The table `T`

contains the following nine columns, in
this order:

`'Scores'`

— Scores sorted from riskiest to safest. The data in this row corresponds to all observations up to and including the score in this row.`'ProbDefault'`

— Probability of default for observations in this row. For deciles, the average probability of default for all observations in the given decile is reported.`'TrueBads'`

## More About

### Cumulative Accuracy Profile (CAP)

CAP is generally a concave curve and is also known as the Gini curve, Power curve, or Lorenz curve.

The scores of given observations are sorted from riskiest to safest. For a
given fraction `M`

(0% to 100%) of the total borrowers, the
height of the CAP curve is the fraction of defaulters whose scores are less than
or equal to the maximum score of the fraction `M`

. This
fraction of defaulters is also known as the “Sensitivity.”.

The area under the CAP curve, known as the AUCAP, is then compared to that of
the perfect or “ideal” model, leading to the definition of a
summary index known as the accuracy ratio (*AR*) or the Gini coefficient:

$$AR=\frac{{A}_{R}}{{A}_{P}}$$

where
*A** _{R}* is the area
between the CAP curve and the diagonal, and

*A*

*is the area between the perfect model and the diagonal. This represents a “random” model, where scores are assigned randomly and therefore the proportion of defaulters and nondefaulters is independent of the score. The perfect model is the model for which all defaulters are assigned the lowest scores, and therefore perfectly discriminates between defaulters and nondefaulters. Thus, the closer to unity*

_{P}*AR*is, the better the scoring model.

### Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC)

To find the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve, the proportion of defaulters up to a given score “s,” or “Sensitivity,” is computed.

This proportion is known as the true positive rate (TPR). Also, the proportion of nondefaulters up to score “s,“ or “False Alarm Rate,” is also computed. This proportion is also known as the false positive rate (FPR). The ROC curve is the plot of the “Sensitivity” vs. the “False Alarm Rate.” Computing the ROC curve is similar to computing the equivalent of a confusion matrix at each score level.

Similar to the CAP, the ROC has a summary statistic known as the area under
the ROC curve (AUROC). The closer to unity, the better the scoring model. The
accuracy ratio (*AR*) is related to the area under the curve by
the following formula:

$$AR=2(AUROC)-1$$

### Kolmogorov-Smirnov Statistic (KS)

The Kolmogorov-Smirnov (KS) plot, also known as the fish-eye graph, is a common statistic for measuring the predictive power of scorecards.

The KS plot shows the distribution of defaulters and the distribution of nondefaulters on the same plot. For the distribution of defaulters, each score “s” is plotted against the proportion of defaulters up to “s," or “Sensitivity." For the distribution of non-defaulters, each score “s” is plotted against the proportion of nondefaulters up to "s," or "False Alarm." The statistic of interest is called the KS statistic and is the maximum difference between these two distributions (“Sensitivity” minus “False Alarm”). The score at which this maximum is attained is also of interest.

### Use `validatemodel`

with Weights

If you provide observation weights, the
`validatemodel`

function incorporates the observation
weights when calculating model validation statistics.

If you do not provide weights, the validation statistics are based on how many good and bad observations fall below a particular score. If you do provide weights, the weight (not the count) is accumulated for the good and the bad observations that fall below a particular score.

When you define observation weights using the optional
`WeightsVar`

name-value pair argument when creating a
`creditscorecard`

object, the
weights stored in the `WeightsVar`

column are used when
validating the model on the training data. When a different validation data set
is provided using the optional `data`

input, observation
weights for the validation data must be included in a column whose name matches
`WeightsVar`

. Otherwise, the unit weights are used for the
validation data set.

The observation weights of the training data affect not only the validation statistics but also the credit scorecard scores themselves. For more information, see Using fitmodel with Weights and Credit Scorecard Modeling Using Observation Weights.
