sklearn.metrics.completeness_score

sklearn.metrics.completeness_score(labels_true, labels_pred)

Completeness metric of a cluster labeling given a ground truth

A clustering result satisfies completeness if all the data points that are members of a given class are elements of the same cluster.

This metric is independent of the absolute values of the labels: a permutation of the class or cluster label values won’t change the score value in any way.

This metric is not symmetric: switching label_true with label_pred will return the homogeneity_score which will be different in general.

Parameters:

labels_true : int array, shape = [n_samples]

ground truth class labels to be used as a reference

labels_pred : array, shape = [n_samples]

cluster labels to evaluate

Returns:

completeness: float :

score between 0.0 and 1.0. 1.0 stands for perfectly complete labeling

Examples

Perfect labelings are complete:

>>> from sklearn.metrics.cluster import completeness_score
>>> completeness_score([0, 0, 1, 1], [1, 1, 0, 0])
1.0

Non-perfect labelings that assign all classes members to the same clusters are still complete:

>>> print(completeness_score([0, 0, 1, 1], [0, 0, 0, 0]))
1.0
>>> print(completeness_score([0, 1, 2, 3], [0, 0, 1, 1]))
1.0

If classes members are split across different clusters, the assignment cannot be complete:

>>> print(completeness_score([0, 0, 1, 1], [0, 1, 0, 1]))
0.0
>>> print(completeness_score([0, 0, 0, 0], [0, 1, 2, 3]))
0.0
