Review of Methodologies

Part of the Springer Optimization and Its Applications book series (SOIA, volume 15)


The review of the previous chapter shows that country risk analysis is often based on the development of models to discriminate between high-risk countries (e.g., rescheduling) and low-risk ones. This chapter is focused on the methods that can be used to develop such models. Special emphasis is given to non-parametric techniques from the field of MCDA. The considered methods include the UTADIS method and the MHDIS method (Multi-group Hierarchical DIScrimination). Both methods lead to the development of additive models that can be used to classify a set of alternatives (e.g., countries) into q predefined ordinal groups:
