The prediction of credit risk by means of biographic variables: Is this the answer?
The objective of this study is to identify specific biographical variables, to quantity them and to investigate their relative importance in the prediction of credit risk. A representative sample of 250 bad credit risk clients and 250 good credit risk clients is used in the study. A multiple stepwise regression analysis and multiple stepwise discriminant analysis were carried out. Nine biographical variables were identified which explain approximately 16% of the variance of credit risk.
