cr: Frequency of correct rejections or true negatives (TN).

Description Usage Format Details See Also


cr is the frequency of correct rejections or true negatives (TN) in a population of N individuals.




An object of class numeric of length 1.


Definition: cr is the frequency of individuals for which Condition = FALSE and Decision = FALSE (negative).

cr is a measure of correct classifications, not an individual case.


  1. to probabilities: The frequency cr depends on the specificity spec (aka. true negative rate, TNR) and is conditional on the prevalence prev.

  2. to other frequencies: In a population of size N the following relationships hold:

    • N = cond_true + cond_false (by condition)

    • N = dec_pos + dec_neg (by decision)

    • N = dec_cor + dec_err (by correspondence of decision to condition)

    • N = hi + mi + fa + cr (by condition x decision)

spec is the specificity or correct rejection rate (aka. true negative rate TNR); num contains basic numeric parameters; init_num initializes basic numeric parameters; freq contains current frequency information; comp_freq computes current frequency information; prob contains current probability information; comp_prob computes current probability information; is_freq verifies frequencies.

Other essential parameters: fa, hi, mi, prev, sens, spec

Other frequencies: N, cond_false, cond_true, dec_cor, dec_err, dec_neg, dec_pos, fa, hi, mi
