In
binary testing, e.g. a medical diagnostic test for a certain disease,
specificity is the proportion of true negatives of all the negative samples tested, that is
- <math>{\rm specificity}=\frac{\rm number\ of\ true\ negatives}{{\rm number\ of\ true\ negatives}+{\rm number\ of\ false\ positives}}.</math>
See binary classification.
