precision_score
(y_true, y_pred, labels=None, pos_label=1, average='binary', sample_weight=None)¶ Compute the precision
The precision is the ratio
tp / (tp + fp)
wheretp
is the number of true positives andfp
the number of false positives. The precision is intuitively the ability of the classifier not to label as positive a sample that is negative.The best value is 1 and the worst value is 0.
Read more in the User Guide.
Parameters: y_true : 1d arraylike, or label indicator array / sparse matrix
Ground truth (correct) target values.
y_pred : 1d arraylike, or label indicator array / sparse matrix
Estimated targets as returned by a classifier.
labels : list, optional
The set of labels to include when
average != 'binary'
, and their order ifaverage is None
. Labels present in the data can be excluded, for example to calculate a multiclass average ignoring a majority negative class, while labels not present in the data will result in 0 components in a macro average. For multilabel targets, labels are column indices. By default, all labels iny_true
andy_pred
are used in sorted order.Changed in version 0.17: parameter labels improved for multiclass problem.
pos_label : str or int, 1 by default
The class to report if
average='binary'
and the data is binary. If the data are multiclass or multilabel, this will be ignored; settinglabels=[pos_label]
andaverage != 'binary'
will report scores for that label only.average : string, [None, ‘binary’ (default), ‘micro’, ‘macro’, ‘samples’, ‘weighted’]
This parameter is required for multiclass/multilabel targets. If
None
, the scores for each class are returned. Otherwise, this determines the type of averaging performed on the data:'binary'
:Only report results for the class specified by
pos_label
. This is applicable only if targets (y_{true,pred}
) are binary.'micro'
:Calculate metrics globally by counting the total true positives, false negatives and false positives.
'macro'
:Calculate metrics for each label, and find their unweighted mean. This does not take label imbalance into account.
'weighted'
:Calculate metrics for each label, and find their average weighted by support (the number of true instances for each label). This alters ‘macro’ to account for label imbalance; it can result in an Fscore that is not between precision and recall.
'samples'
:Calculate metrics for each instance, and find their average (only meaningful for multilabel classification where this differs from
accuracy_score
).
sample_weight : arraylike of shape = [n_samples], optional
Sample weights.
Returns: precision : float (if average is not None) or array of float, shape = [n_unique_labels]
Precision of the positive class in binary classification or weighted average of the precision of each class for the multiclass task.
