sklearn.metrics.f1_score

sklearn.metrics.f1_score(y_true, y_pred, labels=None, pos_label=1, average='binary', sample_weight=None)[source]

Compute the F1 score, also known as balanced F-score or F-measure

The F1 score can be interpreted as a weighted average of the precision and recall, where an F1 score reaches its best value at 1 and worst score at 0. The relative contribution of precision and recall to the F1 score are equal. The formula for the F1 score is:

F1 = 2 * (precision * recall) / (precision + recall)

In the multi-class and multi-label case, this is the weighted average of the F1 score of each class.

Parameters:

y_true : 1d array-like, or label indicator array / sparse matrix

Ground truth (correct) target values.

y_pred : 1d array-like, or label indicator array / sparse matrix

Estimated targets as returned by a classifier.

labels : array

Integer array of labels.

pos_label : str or int, 1 by default

The class to report if average='binary'. Until version 0.18 it is necessary to set pos_label=None if seeking to use another averaging method over binary targets.

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 F-score 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).

Note that if pos_label is given in binary classification with average != ‘binary’, only that positive class is reported. This behavior is deprecated and will change in version 0.18.

sample_weight : array-like of shape = [n_samples], optional

Sample weights.

Returns:

f1_score : float or array of float, shape = [n_unique_labels]

F1 score of the positive class in binary classification or weighted average of the F1 scores of each class for the multiclass task.
