However, by restricting the modeling to local data around the cut point
, where regression discontinuity is most valid, problems with tail probabilities are avoided.
In the PLCO cohort, the lower cut point
was associated with a 43% increased risk (OR, 1.43).
Data from the UKPDS33, ADVANCE, ACCORD, and VADT studies were analyzed to identify the specific cut point
of HbA1c reduction that had a nonglycemic beneficial effect in two groups: (1) ASCVD primary prevention and (2) ASCVD secondary prevention or very high risk.
The entire cohort met the criteria for obesity defined by BMI, waist circumference, and FMI cut points
Requiring positivity on both methods would not enhance specificity because the SCM failed to correctly reclassify any of the 10 total score false positive misclassifications under relaxed criteria at its best-performing cut point
. Hence, we abandoned further analysis of combining the two scoring methods.
Easily adjust cut point
, low maintenance, easy to clean, compact, and available with an optional anti-abrasion resistant coating.
For instance, when a cut point
does not exist, probit and logit techniques using votes as the dependent variable will not produce consistent estimates.
In this illustrative application, the physicians who are above the cut point
are labeled "above threshold" and the remaining labeled "below threshold." In such a categorization system, there are two types of misclassification errors: (1) flagging an above-threshold physician as being below the threshold (equivalent to a false negative) and (2) flagging a below-threshold physician as above threshold (equivalent to a false positive).
"Number One was innovative for its time, the first internal fan classifier with sharp cut point
classification and recirculation.
A cut point
of 8 or higher on the Leiden clinical prediction rule 's linked to a good predictive value in determining which patients with undifferentiated arthritis are at risk for rheumatoid arthritis, according to a meta-analysis of data sets examined with the tool.
"This nomogram could be a laminated card which a physician could sit with at his desk when faced with a suspected placenta accreta patient, to decide whether she is above or below our cut point
, whether we think she actually does or does not have placenta accreta."
