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).



An object of class numeric of length 1.


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:

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


Consult Wikipedia: Confusion matrix for additional information.

dec_err <- 1000 * .50 # => sets dec_err to 50% of 1000 = 500 cases. is_freq(dec_err) # => TRUE
#> [1] TRUE
is_prob(dec_err) # => FALSE, as dec_err is no probability (but acc, bacc/wacc ARE)
#> [1] FALSE
