Binning Explorer

Bin data and export into a creditscorecard object


The Binning Explorer app enables you to manage binning categories for a creditscorecard object. Use screenpredictors to pare down a potentially large set of predictors to a subset that is most predictive of the credit score card response variable. You can then use this subset of predictors when creating a MATLAB® table of data. After creating a table of data in your MATLAB workspace, or after using creditscorecard to create a creditscorecard object, use the Binning Explorer to:

  • Select an automatic binning algorithm with an option to bin missing data. (For more information on algorithms for automatic binning, see autobinning.)

  • Shift bin boundaries.

  • Split bins.

  • Merge bins.

  • Save and export a creditscorecard object.
