dec_pos is a frequency that describes the
number of individuals in the current population
for which the decision is positive (i.e., called or predicted cases).
An object of class
numeric of length 1.
The frequency of
dec_pos individuals depends on the population size
the decision's proportion of positive decisions
ppod and is split further into two subsets of
hi by the positive predictive value
fa by the false detection rate
FDR = 1 - PPV.
to other frequencies:
In a population of size
N the following relationships hold:
