Specificity

Specificityinfo-icon, as a statistical term, refers to the proportioninfo-icon of negatives that are correctly identified (for example, the percentage of healthy people who are correctly identified as not having the condition). Perfect specificity would mean that the measure recognizes all actual negatives. For example, all healthy people will be recognized as healthy. See Sensitivityinfo-icon.
