A value, with every element of a sample space (all the possible outcomes of an experiment). Consider a random experiment of rolling two dice. 3, ... 6}.

5. 5 times as likely to come from a subject with the disease as opposed to coming from a subject without the disease. The likelihood ratio for a negative test result (LR-) represents the likelihood that a negative test result comes from an individual who has the disease or D(+) as opposed to from an individual who does not have the disease or D(-). 6) expresses a relationship between cell c and cell d. As these two cells are in the row of negative test results T(-), LR- expresses how many times more likely a negative test T(-) is seen in someone with the target disease D(+) as opposed to someone without the disease D(-).
