Classification and prediction accuracies for Sin Nombre virus infection status, by vegetation type method and canonical discriminant function analysis

Site in Walker River Basin Classified negative % Classified positive % Overall accuracy %
Vegetation type Status 1 50 ± 12a 88 ± 8 76 ± 10
Vegetation type Status 2 36 ± 9 92 ± 6 59 ± 12
DFAb Status 1 84 ± 9 69 ± 11 74 ± 10
DFA Status 2 84 ± 9 80 ± 10 82 ± 9

aThe error terms following each estimate are 95% confidence intervals derived from the binomial distribution.
bDFA = discriminant function analysis
