Sensitivity(x,event,cutoff,comparison=">=",...)
       Specificity(x,event,cutoff,comparison=">=",...)
       NPV(x,event,cutoff,comparison=">=",...)
       PPV(x,event,cutoff,comparison=">=",...)

Arguments

x

Either a binary 0,1 variable, or a numeric marker which is cut into binary.

event

Binary response variable. Either a 0,1 variable where 1 means 'event', or a factor where the second level means 'event'.

cutoff

When x is a numeric marker, it is compared to this cutoff to obtain a binary test.

comparison

How x is to be compared to the cutoff value

...

passed on to binom.test

Details

Confidence intervals are obtained with binom.test

Value

list with Sensitivity, Specificity, NPV, PPV and confidence interval
