class PredictionDrift[source]#

Calculate prediction drift between train dataset and test dataset, using statistical measures.

Check calculates a drift score for the prediction in the test dataset, by comparing its distribution to the train dataset. For classification tasks, by default the drift score will be computed on the predicted probability of the positive (1) class for binary classification tasks, and on the predicted class itself for multiclass tasks. This behavior can be controlled using the drift_mode parameter.

For numerical columns, we use the Kolmogorov-Smirnov statistic. See We also support Earth Mover’s Distance (EMD). See

For categorical distributions, we use the Cramer’s V. See We also support Population Stability Index (PSI). See

For categorical predictions, it is recommended to use Cramer’s V, unless your variable includes categories with a small number of samples (common practice is categories with less than 5 samples). However, in cases of a variable with many categories with few samples, it is still recommended to use Cramer’s V.

Note: In case of highly imbalanced classes, it is recommended to use Cramer’s V, together with setting the balance_classes parameter to True. This also requires setting the drift_mode parameter to auto (default) or 'prediction'.

drift_mode: str, default: ‘auto’

For classification task, controls whether to compute drift on the predicted probabilities or the predicted classes. For regression task this parameter may be ignored. If set to ‘auto’, compute drift on the predicted class if the task is multiclass, and on the predicted probability of the positive class if binary. Set to ‘proba’ to force drift on the predicted probabilities, and ‘prediction’ to force drift on the predicted classes. If set to ‘proba’, on a multiclass task, drift would be calculated on each class independently. If balance_classes=True, then ‘auto’ will calculate drift on the predicted class even if the label is binary

margin_quantile_filter: float, default: 0.025

float in range [0,0.5), representing which margins (high and low quantiles) of the distribution will be filtered out of the EMD calculation. This is done in order for extreme values not to affect the calculation disproportionally. This filter is applied to both distributions, in both margins.

min_category_size_ratio: float, default 0.01

minimum size ratio for categories. Categories with size ratio lower than this number are binned into an “Other” category. Ignored if balance_classes=True.

max_num_categories_for_drift: int, default: None

Only relevant if drift is calculated for classification predictions. Max number of allowed categories. If there are more, they are binned into an “Other” category.

max_num_categories_for_display: int, default: 10

Max number of categories to show in plot.

show_categories_by: str, default: ‘largest_difference’

Specify which categories to show for categorical features’ graphs, as the number of shown categories is limited by max_num_categories_for_display. Possible values: - ‘train_largest’: Show the largest train categories. - ‘test_largest’: Show the largest test categories. - ‘largest_difference’: Show the largest difference between categories.

numerical_drift_method: str, default: “KS”

decides which method to use on numerical variables. Possible values are: “EMD” for Earth Mover’s Distance (EMD), “KS” for Kolmogorov-Smirnov (KS).

categorical_drift_method: str, default: “cramers_v”

decides which method to use on categorical variables. Possible values are: “cramers_v” for Cramer’s V, “PSI” for Population Stability Index (PSI).

balance_classes: bool, default: False

If True, all categories will have an equal weight in the Cramer’s V score. This is useful when the categorical variable is highly imbalanced, and we want to be alerted on changes in proportion to the category size, and not only to the entire dataset. Must have categorical_drift_method = “cramers_v” and drift_mode = “auto” or “prediction”. If True, the variable frequency plot will be created with a log scale in the y-axis.

ignore_na: bool, default True

For categorical columns only. If True, ignores nones for categorical drift. If False, considers none as a separate category. For numerical columns we always ignore nones.

aggregation_method: t.Optional[str], default: “max”

Argument for the reduce_output functionality, decides how to aggregate the drift scores of different classes (for classification tasks) into a single score, when drift is computed on the class probabilities. Possible values are: ‘max’: Maximum of all the class drift scores. ‘weighted’: Weighted mean based on the class sizes in the train data set. ‘mean’: Mean of all drift scores. None: No averaging. Return a dict with a drift score for each class.

max_classes_to_display: int, default: 3

Max number of classes to show in the display when drift is computed on the class probabilities for classification tasks.

min_samplesint , default: 10

Minimum number of samples required to calculate the drift score. If there are not enough samples for either train or test, the check will raise a NotEnoughSamplesError exception.

n_samplesint , default: 100_000

number of samples to use for this check.

random_stateint, default: 42

random seed for all check internals.
