Scripts - Jackknife

Jackknife command

Jackknife(procedure,matrixname).

This procedure creates a matrix containing the jackknife sampling distribution of various parameters estimated in a statistical procedure.

You can use this matrix in for example the Statistical functions to calculate the mean using the Average function, or calculate the number of values above or below a particular value using the CountIf conditional count function.

The following statistical procedures are enabled for the Jackknife command (more will follow in coming MedCalc updates):

  • MEANS
  • CORRELATION, RANKCORRELATION, PARTIALCORRELATION, REGRESSION
  • ONESAMPLETTEST, TTESTPAIRED
  • SIGNEDRANKSUMTEST, WILCOXON
  • RELATIVERISK, MCNEMAR
  • BLANDALTMAN, PASSINGBABLOK, DEMING
  • CVFROMDUPLICATES
  • CONCORDANCE, KAPPA

Notes

  • During execution, subgroups are ignored.
  • During execution, bootstrap procedures in the statistical procedure itself are disabled.
  • When logarithmic transformation (or Box-Cox transformation) is applied, the reported results are not back-transformed to their original scale.
