roc_curve
(y_true, y_score, pos_label=None, sample_weight=None, drop_intermediate=True)[source]¶ Compute Receiver operating characteristic (ROC)
Note: this implementation is restricted to the binary classification task.
Read more in the User Guide.
Parameters: y_true : array, shape = [n_samples]
True binary labels in range {0, 1} or {1, 1}. If labels are not binary, pos_label should be explicitly given.
y_score : array, shape = [n_samples]
Target scores, can either be probability estimates of the positive class, confidence values, or nonthresholded measure of decisions (as returned by “decision_function” on some classifiers).
pos_label : int
Label considered as positive and others are considered negative.
sample_weight : arraylike of shape = [n_samples], optional
Sample weights.
drop_intermediate : boolean, optional (default=True)
Whether to drop some suboptimal thresholds which would not appear on a plotted ROC curve. This is useful in order to create lighter ROC curves.
New in version 0.17: parameter drop_intermediate.
Returns: fpr : array, shape = [>2]
Increasing false positive rates such that element i is the false positive rate of predictions with score >= thresholds[i].
tpr : array, shape = [>2]
Increasing true positive rates such that element i is the true positive rate of predictions with score >= thresholds[i].
thresholds : array, shape = [n_thresholds]
Decreasing thresholds on the decision function used to compute fpr and tpr. thresholds[0] represents no instances being predicted and is arbitrarily set to max(y_score) + 1.

 Compute Area Under the Curve (AUC) from prediction scores
Notes
Since the thresholds are sorted from low to high values, they are reversed upon returning them to ensure they correspond to both
fpr
andtpr
, which are sorted in reversed order during their calculation.References
