Abstract: Most real-world domains deal with the major changes that may occur after the development of a predictive model. This work shows a novel methodology to detect dataset shift in sets used for logistic regression based predictive modelling. The main difference compared to existing approaches is the use of the estimated coefficients to construct a statistical measure that identifies when predictors are shifting. We provide experimental results using credit scoring datasets, assessing the proposed method's effectiveness and gaining insight of the underlying process that generates the data.
