Table 3 Distribution of predicted and actual vital status by initial treatment outcomes

From: Use of predicted vital status to improve survival analysis of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis cohorts

  1. *Out of 416 who experienced an initial non-death treatment outcome
  2. #Out of 117 who experienced an initial non-death unsuccessful treatment outcome
  3. Note: denominators for the alive and dead columns for the predicted and actual end-of-cohort treatment outcomes are the total from the initial treatment outcome column
