negative predictive value

A numerical value for the proportion of individuals with a negative test result who are free of the target condition—i.e., the probability that a person who is a test negative is a true negative.

(neg'a-tiv prē-dik'tiv val'yū)
The probability of a negative test result indicates the absence of an analyte or a specific disease.

negative predictive value

The proportion of people whose test results are true negatives and who are truly disease free.

predictive value
