Z score

Z score interpretation

  • The higher the score, more the probability of failure is low. A score above 2.9 is very good (2.6 for non-manufacturing).
  • A score below 1.23 (1.1 for non-manufacturing) indicates a very high probability of failure.
  • Scores between the two above limits represent a gray area for medium-sized companies where the risk is present but not very strong.
