The Probability of Penalizing the Innocent Due to Bad Test Results

Created by Intuitor.com, this is an example of "growing" a decision tree to analyze two possible outcomes. The tree's branches examine the two possible conditions of employee drug use with corresponding probabilities. This example looks at the final outcome probabilities of being correctly and incorrectly identified versus testing accuracy. While brief, this is still a great example of how statistics can be applied across many different disciplines.
