Critical Points for Certain Statistical Measures of Agreement
Feuerman, M.; Miller, A. R.
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v38 n6 p739-748 Sep 2007
This paper further explores the analytic connections between three commonly used statistical measures of agreement for 2 x 2 contingency tables: sensitivity, specificity, and the kappa coefficient, which are often employed in evaluating diagnostic tests. In particular, for a given fixed kappa the corresponding locus of minimum values of sensitivity and specificity is rigorously derived. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
