204.2.4 Goodness of fit for Logistic Regression

Goodness of Fit for a Logistic Regression

There are quite a lot methods to find how good a model is. However, we will stick to most important measures applicable for a logistic regression model.

  • Classification Matrix
  • AIC and BIC
  • ROC & AUC

Out of these three we will go through Classification matrix or confusion matrix in this post and understand rest in upcoming posts.

Classification Table & Accuracy

Predicted / Actual 0 1
0 True Positive (TP) False Positive (FP)
1 False Negative (FN) True Negative (TN)
  • Also known as confusion matrix
  • Accuracy=(TP+TN)/(TP+FP+FN+TN)

Practice : Confusion Matrix & Accuracy

  • Create confusion matrix for Fiber bits model(Model built in previous posts of this series)
In [25]:
###for using confusion matrix###
from sklearn.metrics import confusion_matrix
cm1 = confusion_matrix(Fiber[['active_cust']],predict1)
print(cm1)
[[29210 12931]
 [10183 47676]]
  • Find the accuracy value for fiber bits model
In [26]:
total1=sum(sum(cm1))
accuracy1=(cm1[0,0]+cm1[1,1])/total1
accuracy1
Out[26]:
0.76885999999999999
