Calculate the Youden-Index

Description

Calculate the Youden-Index (J-Index) from true positives, false positives, true negatives and false negatives. The inputs must be vectors of equal length.

sensitivity = tp / (tp + fn)
specificity = tn / (tn + fp)
youden_index = sensitivity + specificity - 1

Usage

youden(tp, fp, tn, fn, ...)

Arguments

tp

(numeric) number of true positives.

fp

(numeric) number of false positives.

tn

(numeric) number of true negatives.

fn

(numeric) number of false negatives.

...
