comp_err

Percentile

Compute overall error rate (err) from probabilities.

comp_err computes overall error rate err from 3 essential probabilities prev, sens, and spec.

Usage
comp_err(prev, sens, spec)
Arguments
prev

The condition's prevalence prev (i.e., the probability of condition being TRUE).

sens

The decision's sensitivity sens (i.e., the conditional probability of a positive decision provided that the condition is TRUE).

spec

The decision's specificity value spec (i.e., the conditional probability of a negative decision provided that the condition is FALSE).

Details

comp_err uses comp_acc to compute err as the complement of acc:

err = 1 - acc

See comp_acc and acc for further details and accu for other accuracy metrics and several possible interpretations of accuracy.

Value

Overall error rate err as a probability (proportion). A warning is provided for NaN values.
