Each line in the figure starts at the upper left corner because labeling no banks as unsatisfactory implies that all of the truly unsatisfactory banks are mislabeled, so that type-1 error is 100 percent and type-2 error is zero.
This pattern means that, for any level of type-2 error, type-1 error is lower for FIMS than for the UBSS.
Once again, a trade-off exists between type-1 and type-2 error rates (table 6).
Hence, the type-1 error rate for the UBSS is slightly less than that of FIMS, but the type-2 error rate is much greater than that of FIMS.
As with the distinction between satisfactory and unsatisfactory tested earlier, comparing the type-1 versus type-2 error trade-off over all possible cut-off values is a more revealing test.
