    Comparing sensitivity, specificity, accuracy between two different diagnostic tests used on the same group of patients

    Dear all Could someone advice on how I should go about comparing the sensitivity, specificity, accuracy between two different diagnostic tests used on the same group of patients on SPSS? ie: sensitivity (test 1, test 2, p-value) specificity (test 1, test 2, p-value) accuracy (test 1, test 2...

    Adapted version of sensitivity / specificity for disease detection

    I have data collected from sensors to detect disease in several individuals. Each individual has a known disease status (labeled Actual in the table below) for each day and a predicted disease status (Predicted in the table below) from prediction equations performed on the sensor data. I am...

    Diagnostic test - speciicity when multiple testing - clever statistician needed!

    During validation of a diagnostic test a false positive event is observed in 1 out of 60 occasions leading to a specificity of 98.3% when testing for a single event. If 30 events are looked for using this test at a single time point and detection of a single event is considered a positive...

    Logistic Regression model: a significant predicting variable with low sensitivity?

    Hi fellow forum members! Thank you in advance for your time! I used binary logistics regression (SPSS) to determine the relationship between ambient noise levels (a continuous variable on a logarithmic scale, dB) and a single dichotomous dependent variable ("yes" - 1- for whale positive...

    Classification for cloglog

    Howdy! I need to know how one can go about obtaining the overall classification, the sensitivity and specificity of a cloglog estimation in Stata. Is there an equivalent to that beautiful estat classification command that works so well in logits and probits? Many thanks!

    Interpreting sensitivity and specificity with corresponding PPV and NPV

    Hello, I have calculated sensitivities, specificities with pos and neg predictive values for different cutoff values of two biomarkers. What i get is the following: Biomarker 1: High spec (92%) low sens (20%) with high NPV (91%) and low PPV (22%) Biomarker 2: High sens (90%) low spec...

    calculate sample size for sensitivity and specificity in a new diagnositic test

    My question is difficult to me, I had read an article about how to calculate sample size the foot note tole me"" ε = required absolute precision on either side of the sensitivity "" what is the absolute precision means ? and generally how to chose required absolute precision on either...

    Sensitivity and Specificity and explained variance.

    Hi. I have one dependent variable (Y) which is binary. I have this data for 100 subjects. I want to generate binary data for 3 independent variables (X1, X2, X3) (so effectively I want to generate 3 columns of data with 100 values in each column) I want to generate this data according to...

    HELP: Factor analysis used in personality scale

    I am struggling through this article on a personality measure scale (NEO-PI-R) : http://jenni.uchicago.edu/econ-psych-traits/CostaMcCrae1995.pdf On the article p. 27~8, they seem to be looking for specific variance for each variable, and they apparently do this by deriving specificity...
