New publication: PPV and NPV for continous and ordinal tests

Many diagnostic tests get dichotomized when calculating the positive and negative predictive value in a clinical setting - this is obviously a loss of information that could be avoided. In this paper, i extended the rationale of the ppv and npv to continous and ordinal scales, so you can get a more fine-grained assessment. Find the paper at the International Journal of Methods in Psychiatric Research.

I used data from the Health Measures dataverse, so this paper qualified for the QUEST Open Data Reuse Award. Nice!
