sklearn.metrics.recall_score

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

Compute the recall

The recall is the ratio tp / (tp + fn) where tp is the number of true positives and fn the number of false negatives. The recall is intuitively the ability of the classifier to find all the positive samples.

The best value is 1 and the worst value is 0.

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:

recall : float (if average is not None) or array of float, shape = [n_unique_labels]

Recall of the positive class in binary classification or weighted average of the recall of each class for the multiclass task.

Examples

>>> from sklearn.metrics import recall_score
>>> y_true = [0, 1, 2, 0, 1, 2]
>>> y_pred = [0, 2, 1, 0, 0, 1]
>>> recall_score(y_true, y_pred, average='macro')  
0.33...
>>> recall_score(y_true, y_pred, average='micro')  
0.33...
>>> recall_score(y_true, y_pred, average='weighted')  
0.33...
>>> recall_score(y_true, y_pred, average=None)
array([ 1.,  0.,  0.])
