- fairlearn.metrics.demographic_parity_difference(y_true, y_pred, *, sensitive_features, method='between_groups', sample_weight=None)[source]#
Calculate the demographic parity difference.
The demographic parity difference is defined as the difference between the largest and the smallest group-level selection rate, \(E[h(X) | A=a]\), across all values \(a\) of the sensitive feature(s). The demographic parity difference of 0 means that all groups have the same selection rate.
