compactCreditScorecard

Create compactCreditScorecard object for a credit scorecard model

Description

Build a compact credit scorecard model by creating a compactCreditScorecard object from an existing creditscorecard object.

After creating a compactCreditScorecard object, you can use the associated object functions to display points (displaypoints), calculate the probability of default (probdefault), or compute scores (score).

Note

You cannot directly modify a compactCreditScorecard object. To change a compactCreditScorecard object, you must modify the existing creditscorecard object that you used to create the compactCreditScorecard object. You must then use compactCreditScorecard to create a new compactCreditScorecard object.

Creation

Description

example

csc = compactCreditScorecard(sc) creates a compactCreditScorecard object from an existing creditscorecard. You can then use the compactCreditScorecard object with the displaypoints, score, and probdefault functions.

Note

You cannot use a compactCreditScorecard object with the Binning Explorer app.

Input Arguments

expand all

creditscorecard object, specified using an existing creditscorecard object.

Note

To use a creditscorecard object for input, you must first process the object using the autobinning and fitmodel functions. Optionally, you can also use formatpoints for processing.

Data Types: object

Properties

expand all

Names of the predictor variables used in the input creditscorecard object, returned as a cell array of character vectors. The PredictorVars property includes only the predictor variable names in the fitted creditscorecard object.

Data Types: cell

Numeric predictors in the input creditscorecard object, returned as a cell array of character vectors. The NumericPredictors property includes only the numeric predictors in the fitted creditscorecard object.

Data Types: cell

Names of categorical predictors used in the input creditscorecard object, returned as a cell array of character vectors. The CategoricalPredictors property includes only the categorical predictors in the fitted creditscorecard object.

Data Types: cell

User-defined description, returned as a character vector or string.

Data Types: char | string

Object Functions

displaypointsReturn points per predictor per bin for a compactCreditScorecard object
scoreCompute credit scores for given dataset for a compactCreditScorecard object
probdefaultLikelihood of default for given dataset for a compactCreditScorecard object
validatemodelValidate quality of compact credit scorecard model

To create a compactCreditScorecard object, first 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)
sc = 
  creditscorecard with properties:

                GoodLabel: 0
              ResponseVar: 'status'
               WeightsVar: ''
                 VarNames: {1x11 cell}
        NumericPredictors: {1x7 cell}
    CategoricalPredictors: {'ResStatus'  'EmpStatus'  'OtherCC'}
           BinMissingData: 0
                    IDVar: ''
            PredictorVars: {1x10 cell}
                     Data: [1200x11 table]

Before creating a compactCreditScorecard object, you must use autobinning and fitmodel with the creditscorecard object.

sc = autobinning(sc);
sc = fitmodel(sc);
1. Adding CustIncome, Deviance = 1490.8527, Chi2Stat = 32.588614, PValue = 1.1387992e-08
2. Adding TmWBank, Deviance = 1467.1415, Chi2Stat = 23.711203, PValue = 1.1192909e-06
3. Adding AMBalance, Deviance = 1455.5715, Chi2Stat = 11.569967, PValue = 0.00067025601
4. Adding EmpStatus, Deviance = 1447.3451, Chi2Stat = 8.2264038, PValue = 0.0041285257
5. Adding CustAge, Deviance = 1441.994, Chi2Stat = 5.3511754, PValue = 0.020708306
6. Adding ResStatus, Deviance = 1437.8756, Chi2Stat = 4.118404, PValue = 0.042419078
7. Adding OtherCC, Deviance = 1433.707, Chi2Stat = 4.1686018, PValue = 0.041179769

Generalized linear regression model:

Use the creditscorecard object with compactCreditScorecard to create a compactCreditScorecard object.

csc = compactCreditScorecard(sc)
csc = 
  compactCreditScorecard with properties:

              Description: ''
                GoodLabel: 0
              ResponseVar: 'status'
               WeightsVar: ''
        NumericPredictors: {'CustAge'  'CustIncome'  'TmWBank'  'AMBalance'}
    CategoricalPredictors: {'ResStatus'  'EmpStatus'  'OtherCC'}
            PredictorVars: {1x7 cell}

You can then use displaypoints, score, and probdefault with the compactCreditScorecard object.
