From: Using verbal autopsy to measure causes of death: the comparative performance of existing methods

Figure 12

Specificity (%) for five methods for six neonatal causes. Figure 12 shows the median specificity for each method (except King-Lu which does not provide individual cause of death assignments) for five neonatal causes and stillbirth. Cells are shaded from red (low specificity) to green (high specificity) to help identify the relative differences between specificities across methods and causes. HCE, health care experience; PCVA, physician-certified VA; RF, Random Forest; SSP, Simplified Symptom Pattern; VA, verbal autopsy.
