Matthews Correlation Coefficient (MCC) measures the quality of a classification by taking into account true and false positives and negatives. It is generally regarded as a balanced measure which can be used even if the classes are of very different sizes. The MCC is a correlation coefficient between the observed and predicted binary classifications. A coefficient of 1 represents a perfect prediction, 0 no better than random prediction, and −1 indicates total disagreement between prediction and observation.
