Issue of Classification Versus Precision in Comparing Classification Models
We contrast classification and precision rates as tools for model diagnosis and comparison for binary target models. These types of models are of constant use in the database marketing area, banking, telecommunications and clinical research, among others. We review advantages and disadvantages in their respective usage, and relate them to the Bayesian Theorem. In tandem, we review their connection to ROC and Lift curves.
