Goodness-of-fit statistics for age-specific reference intervals.

Abstract

The age-specific reference interval is a commonly used screening tool in medicine. It involves estimation of extreme quantile curves (such as the 5th and 95th centiles) of a reference distribution of clinically normal individuals. It is crucial that models used to estimate such intervals fit the data extremely well. However, few procedures to assess… (More)
