3) would be calculated for each scenario, obtaining an empirical distribution of the statistic. The distribution is then used to determine the p-value based on the real validation sample statistic. Another widely used and a simple method is the Binomial Test. Its disadvantage is that it can be used only for a single rating grade s with the forecast probability of default PDs. We can apply a one-tailed or two-tailed test. If the null hypothesis is that PD is the default probability, and we assume that the events of default are independent, then the probability of j defaults out of n observations is   n j PD ð1 À PDÞnÀj .

Henceforth, we will work with the logistic regression model. 8) take the following relatively simple form: X ∂l ¼ ðyi À ΛðÀb0 Áxi ÞÞxi, j ¼ 0 for j ¼ 0, . . , k: ∂bj i ð3:10Þ It can be shown that the Hessian (the matrix of the second order derivatives) is negatively definite, consequently, the log likelihood function is strictly concave, and so the solution exists and is unique. The solution can be found using NewtonRaphson’s algorithm usually after just a few iterations. Since xi, 0 ¼ 1 corresponding to the intercept coefficient b0, we have a useful observation that the average of the predicted probabilities (on the training sample) equals the overall default rate in the sample.

By correlated variables that will surely exist if the list of variables is too long, etc. Therefore, the general recommendation is to create a short list of variables, around 20–30, that have an acceptable explanatory power based on the univariate analysis discussed below. , requiring at least 10% value) and/or on the Information Value described below (typically, at least 4%). In addition, the variables should not be correlated—if there are two highly correlated variables, then the one with the lower explanatory power is to be eliminated from the short list.
