The methods most commonly used for analyzing receiver operating characteristic (ROC) data incorporate "binormal" assumptions about the latent frequency distributions of test results. Although these assumptions have proved robust to a wide variety of actual frequency distributions, some data sets do not "fit" the binormal model. In such cases, resampling techniques such as the jackknife and the bootstrap provide versatile, distribution-independent, and more appropriate methods for hypothesis… CONTINUE READING
