- sklearn.metrics.davies_bouldin_score(X, labels)[source]¶
Compute the Davies-Bouldin score.
The score is defined as the average similarity measure of each cluster with its most similar cluster, where similarity is the ratio of within-cluster distances to between-cluster distances. Thus, clusters which are farther apart and less dispersed will result in a better score.
The minimum score is zero, with lower values indicating better clustering.
