Specificity Example: Comparison

  • We have determined that the specificity of our experimental method is approximately 27% and our tried-and-true method is almost 93%.
  • Specificity reflects the ability of a test to categorize those individuals without the condition as negative. A highly specific test will be negative in most individuals without the condition. Conversely, those individuals who test positively with a highly specific test are likely to have the condition.
