We have taken this sample size is based on level of precision; precision consists of allowable error
. In this study 10% allowable error
The agreement was first determined graphically with a scatterplot produced with the reference method (Cobas) as the x-axis, the compared method (CardioChek) as the j-axis, cholesterol values, equality line, acceptance limits around the equality line, clinical allowable error
limits around the equality line, and Passing-Ba-block regression line (Fig 1).
Predicting defects using imprecision (CV), inaccuracy (Bias) and total allowable error
It allows one to set analytical-quality goals for imprecision, bias, and total allowable error
; determine an individual's RCV for interpreting serial testing results; or set internal rules ([DELTA] check) to flag possible error in the preanalytical or analytical testing phases.
If the upper and lower bounds fall within the interval of difference created by predefined total allowable error
, then the two methods of measurement can be considered equivalent.
If [e.sup.(k).sub.max] > [epsilon] and [R.sub.ij] [greater than or equal to] [bar.R] at mesh interval [S.sub.k], where e denotes maximum allowable error
, the nonsmooth points exist in this mesh interval.
Table 2 shows that the iterative allowable error
is smaller, and the number of corresponding iterations is higher.
Alternatively, one could apply the total allowable error
to the test result to create a band of error-transformed results.
The prevalence of obesity was 10% in a study by Subramanya et al.,  the sample size was calculated using the following formula: n = [Z.sup.2]pq/[L.sup.2], where Zis the standard normal variate for 95% confidence interval = 1.96; p is the prevalence of obesity = 0.1; q = (1 - p) = 1 - 0.1 = 0.9; L is the allowable error
. Considering an absolute allowable error
of 3%, n [approximately equal to] 390, and considering 15% of the study participants as nonrespondents, a total sample size of [approximately equal to]450 was calculated.
The next step is to find the Total Allowable Error
(TEa) for ceramic.
As the meaningfulness level obtained (0.011) is lower than the allowable error
, 5%, the second hypothesis of the research is verified.
Another comparison is offered in Figure 6, showing the estimated cumulative localization error probability of SURWSPA, URW-BP, and BP as a function of allowable error
. We compare the three localization algorithms with 5 iterations, which are required to converge by URW-BP and BP.
