Specificity Example: Calculations (2)

  • To calculate the specificity of the tried-and-true method, we'll use these numbers:
    325 True Negatives
    Divided by (325 True Negatives + 25 False Positives)
    Times 100
    (325 ÷ (325 + 25)) x 100.
  • The specificity for the tried-and-true method is 92.9%.
