Measuring Corporate Default Risk

This chapter provides a battery of tests of the ability of the model estimated in Chapter 4 to capture default correlation. Several of these tests are based on a time re-scaling by which defaults arrive according to a constant-intensity Poisson process. The results show that U.S. corporations have defaulted in a manner that suggests significantly more default correlation that is apparent merely from the observable covariates.
