Abstract

Paper introduces the improved version of a credit scoring model which assesses credit worthiness of applicants for a loan. The scorecard has a two-level multilevel structure which nests applicants for a loan within microenvironments. Paper discusses several versions of the multilevel scorecards which includes random-intercept, random-coefficients and group-level variables. The primary benefit of the multilevel scorecard compared to a conventional scoring model is a higher accuracy of the model predictions.
