sklearn.metrics.normalized_mutual_info_score(labels_true, labels_pred, average_method=’warn’)
Normalized Mutual Information between two clusterings.
Normalized Mutual Information (NMI) is a normalization of the Mutual Information (MI) score to scale the results between 0 (no mutual information) and 1 (perfect correlation). In this function, mutual information is normalized by some generalized mean of
H(labels_pred)), defined by the
This measure is not adjusted for chance. Therefore
adjusted_mutual_info_score might be preferred.
This metric is independent of the absolute values of the labels: a permutation of the class or cluster label values won’t change the score value in any way.
This metric is furthermore symmetric: switching
label_pred will return the same score value. This can be useful to measure the agreement of two independent label assignments strategies on the same dataset when the real ground truth is not known.

Perfect labelings are both homogeneous and complete, hence have score 1.0:
>>> from sklearn.metrics.cluster import normalized_mutual_info_score >>> normalized_mutual_info_score([0, 0, 1, 1], [0, 0, 1, 1]) ... 1.0 >>> normalized_mutual_info_score([0, 0, 1, 1], [1, 1, 0, 0]) ... 1.0
If classes members are completely split across different clusters, the assignment is totally in-complete, hence the NMI is null:
>>> normalized_mutual_info_score([0, 0, 0, 0], [0, 1, 2, 3])i ... 0.0
