FIGURE 10. Spearman’s Rank Correlation Coefficient for Agency Outcomes Using Current versus Core logic and Cognitive Outcomes
NOTE: Each point represents the value of Spearman’s rank correlation coefficient for the ordinal ranking of agencies on their patient outcomes using the current model compared to rankings using the core alternative risk-adjustment model. It is a standard correlation coefficient, ranging from -1 to 1. In this figure, a value of 0 represents no relationship between the rankings, -1 represents perfectly opposite rankings, and 1 represents perfectly matching ranks produced by the models being compared. For purposes of presentation, only the range from 0-85 to 1 on the vertical (y) axis is shown in this figure.
