Such an adjustment would increase the number of banks classified correctly as unsatisfactory and decrease type-1 error, but at the cost of decreasing the number of satisfactory banks correctly classified and increasing type-2 error.
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.
