This study compares the predictive performance of three neural network methods, namely the Learning Vector Quantization, Radial Basis Function, the Feedforward network that uses the conjugate gradient optimization algorithm, with the performance of the logistic regression and the standard backpropagation algorithm. All these methods are applied to a dataset of 139 matched-pairs of bankrupt and non-bankrupt U.S firms for the period 1983-1994. The results of this study indicate that the contemporary neural network methods applied in the present study provide superior results to those obtained from the logistic regression method and from the feedforward method using the standard backpropagation algorithm.
