Consumer finance data generator - a new approach to Credit Scoring technique comparison
AbstractThis paper aims to present a general idea of method comparison of Credit Scoring techniques. Any scorecard can be made in various methods based on variable transformations in the logistic regression model. To make a comparison and come up with the proof that one technique is better than another is a big challenge due to the limited availability of data. The same conclusion cannot be guaranteed when using other data from another source. The following research challenge can therefore be formulated: how should the comparison be managed in order to get general results that are not biased by particular data? The solution may be in the use of various random data generators. The data generator uses two approaches: transition matrix and scorings. Here are presented both: results of comparison methods and the methodology of these comparison techniques creating. Before building a new model the modeler can undertake a comparison exercise that aims at identifying the best method in the case of the particular data. Here are presented various measures of predictive model like: Gini, Delta Gini, VIF and Max p-value, emphasizing the multi-criteria problem of a "Good model". The idea that is being suggested is of particular use in the model building process where there are defined complex criteria trying to cover the important problems of model stability over a period of time, in order to avoid a crisis. Some arguments for choosing Logit or WOE approach as the best scorecard technique are presented.
