Abstract

The problem of comparing the accuracies of several classifiers that have been applied to the same set of observations is considered. A strategy based on the application of repeated measures analysis procedures to dichotomous data is proposed for making the comparison. The strategy is illustrated using a set of data taken from the literature.
