Calibration (the degree of agreement between predicted mortality determined by the model and actual mortality) was tested using the Hosmer-Lemeshow goodness-of-fit H and C statistics (23), calibration curve analysis and standard mortality ratio. The degrees of freedom (df) 8 and 10 were used to evaluate the calibration by the Hosmer-Lemeshow statistics in the calibration and validation groups, respectively.
