  1. The statistical analysis of Kappa statistics in multiple samples.

    Article - En anglais

    Methods are presented for assessing and comparing the results of k = 2 independent samples of measured agreement or concordance, where in each sample a given member of a pair of observations is classified according to the presence or absence of a binary trait.

    Examples include the assessment of interobserver agreement across different groups of patients in a clinical study, investigations of sibling concordance across different genetic groups, and meta-analyses of observer agreement across different studies.

    The methodology described is based on application of goodness-of-fit theory to testing hypotheses concerning kappa statistics.

    Partitioning methods allow a variety of hypotheses to be tested, including an assessment of the degree of agreement within each sample, a testing procedure based on the pooled data, and a test of heterogeneity that may be used to assess the validity of pooling across samples.

    Three examples are given.
