What does it do?

Why do we need it?

What is the formula? What is Bayes’ Theorem 5% of the population has X disease.

95% of tests correctly identify a positive result when disease is present.

2% of tests detect the disease when it is not present (false positive)

What is the probability that you have disease X if you get a positive result? Formula Explained Probability = outcome / all possibilities

Probability = True positive / (True positive + False negative)

Probability = .0475/(.0475+.019)= .714 Formula Explained P(A|B) – the probability that you have the disease given a positive test

P(B|A) – the probability you have a positive test given you have the disease

P(A) – the probability of a positive test

P(B≠A) – the probability you have a positive test given you do not have the disease

P(≠A) – the probability you do not have the disease

P(A|B) = (.95*.05)/((.95*.05)+(.95*.02)) = .714 In Bayesian: P(A|B)= P(B|A)*P(A)

P(B|A)*P(A)+P(B≠A)*P(≠A) Formula Explained
