Conditional Statistical Parity Testing

Control

If applicable, test Model(s) for conditional statistical parity. Evaluate whether Model(s) predict a Positive Outcome at the same rate across (Sub)populations given some predefined set of "legitimate explanatory factors".


Aim

To (a) ensure that (Sub)populations members are receiving the Positive Outcome just as often as (Sub)populations with similar underlying characteristics; and (b) highlight associated risks that might occur in the Product Lifecycle.
