Two techniques, one traditional (logistic regression analysis) and the other contemporary (neural networks) are used to estimate sovereign debt service capacity (DSC). Models are built with these two methods using the same set of measurements (indices) as determinants of DSC. Performances of these two models are compared in a controlled environment. Advantages and drawbacks of these two techniques are discussed.
