Estimated Race/GenderWe employ the Bayesian Improved Surname Geocoding (BISG) method to estimate race probability. We use a first name database to assign gender.
Expected Rate ModelingBy analyzing your loan data we estimate the expected interest rate for each loan, controlling for origination time period and credit quality. We can then compare these results to actual rates charged to determine if potential discrimination exists.
Expected Approval Rate Modeling*For loan applications we calculate an expected approval rate for each applicant and then compare these results to actual approvals or denials.
SteeringOur steering ratios determine if there is comparative evidence of steering, or abnormal concentrations of disadvantageous products by prohibited basis groups.
Denial Ratio AnalysisFor loan applications, our software analyzes your denial (or approval) ratios, as well as time to decision metrics for potential discrimination.
Potential DiscriminationWe employ several statistical tests to analyze whether potential disparate treatment/discrimination exists in the form of pricing discrimination, steering, or approvals, and, where possible, highlight these situations with clear red, yellow, and green indicators.
