positive predictive value

(redirected from Precision rate)

positive predictive value

Statistics The number of true positives divided by the sum of true positives–TP and false positives–FP, a value representing the proportion of subjects with a positive test result who actually have the disease, aka 'efficiency' of a test. Cf Negative predictive value, ROC–receiver operating characteristic.

pos·i·tive pre·dic·tive val·ue

(poz'i-tiv prĕ-dik'tiv val'yū)
The probability that a positive result accurately indicates that the analyte or the specific disease is present.

Positive predictive value (PPV)

The probability that a person with a positive test result has, or will get, the disease.

predictive value

a measure used by clinicians to interpret diagnostic test results. See also sensitivity, specificity.

positive predictive value
the probability that a patient with a positive test result really does have the condition for which the test was conducted.
negative predictive value
the probability that a patient with a negative test result really is free of the condition for which the test was conducted.
