Prediction Bias and Selection Bias: An Empirical Analysis.
Cahan, Sorel; Gamliel, Eyal
Applied Measurement in Education, v14 n2 p109-23 2001
Proposed a definition of selection bias and studied the empirical relation between prediction bias and selection bias with respect to prominent social groups. Results show that, although the two biases are related, the relation is not isomorphic. It is mediated by the selection ratio, and for most selection ratios, it is only moderate. (SLD)
