Herramientas de Stata para resolver retos analíticos frecuentes en la evaluación de pruebas de tamizaje


  • Eduardo Ortiz-Panozo



Las pruebas de tamizaje se usan ampliamente en salud pública para identificar fases tempranas de enfermedad. Generalmente los resultados del tamizaje se categorizan como positivo o negativo, y es común que sólo se evalúe el resultado positivo, lo cual puede ocasionar el denominado sesgo de verificación. Además es frecuente que a un mismo individuo se le aplique más de una prueba de tamizaje en un mismo estudio, lo cual origina correlación entre observaciones.
