dec_err is a frequency that describes the number of individuals in the current population N for which the decision is incorrect or erroneous (i.e., cases in which the decision does not correspond to the condition).

dec_err

## Format

An object of class numeric of length 1.

## Details

Key relationships:

1. to probabilities: The frequency of dec_err individuals depends on the population size N and is equal to the sum of false negatives mi and false positives fa.

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)

• dec_cor = hi + cr

• dec_err = mi + fa

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

Current frequency information is computed by comp_freq and contained in a list freq.

Consult Wikipedia: Confusion matrix for additional information.

is_freq verifies frequencies; 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.
Other frequencies: N, cond_false, cond_true, cr, dec_cor, dec_neg, dec_pos, fa, hi, mi
dec_err <- 1000 * .50   # => sets dec_err to 50% of 1000 = 500 cases.
is_freq(dec_err)        # => TRUE#>  TRUEis_prob(dec_err)        # => FALSE, as dec_err is no probability (but acc, bacc/wacc ARE)#>  FALSE
