Abstract

Among the different data mining techniques which can be used to extract knowledge from numerical data, the nearest neighbor approach has been widely applied in many mathematical and statistical problems. In this paper we use an algorithm based on a modified version of the nearest neighbor method to solve a problem of classifying the creditworthy clients, in a banking context. The empirical analysis is undertaken by considering data from an Italian local bank.
