justification-for-one-tailed-test |
"If the statistical test is one-tailed, it's use must be explained." | STRING | 0:1 | ||

pairwise? |
"Whether pairwise comparisons of outcomes were analyzed for trials with three or more arms (e.g., in Arm A vs. B, in B vs. C, and in A vs. C)." | SYMBOL | Yes No | 0:1 | |

program-name |
"Name of the computer program used to run this analysis, e.g., STATA, SAS, SPSS, Minitab." | STRING | 0:1 | ||

number-of-tails |
"Two-tailed tests consider and test for the possibility of the effect being beneficial or harmful. One-tailed tests consider only one possibility. The use of one-tailed tests must be justified." | SYMBOL | One-tailed Two-tailed | 0:1 | |

statistical-test-name |
"The name of the statistical test for analysis of this outcome. e.g., paired-t-test, Kruskal-Wallis test, Wilcoxon rank-sum, etc. These test names are partially modelled in UMLS (mostly in PSY97). The list below is taken from Lang, Secic 'How to Report Statistics in Medicine' p. 71." | SYMBOL | ANOVA ANOVA-Friedman ANOVA-one-way-Friedman ANOVA-repeated-measures Chi-square Cox Proportional Hazard F-test Kruskal-Wallis Log-rank Mantel-Haenszel Mann-Whitney-U McNemar's Paired-t Students-t Wilcoxon-rank-sum Wilcoxon-signed-rank Other | 0:1 | |

parametric? |
"Whether the test is a parametric or non-parametric test." | SYMBOL | parametric non-parametric | 0:1 | |

confidence-interval-percent |
SYMBOL | 90% c.i. 95% c.i. 99% c.i. | 0:1 | "95% c.i." | |

justification-for-statistical-test-used |
"Justification for why this statistical test was used." | STRING | 0:1 | ||

censoring-approach |
"The statistical approach taken to dealing with censored observations." | STRING | 0:1 | ||

whether-test-assumptions-hold |
"Description of whether the assumptions necessary for the test (e.g., normal distribution), were seen in the actual data analyzed." | STRING | 0:1 | ||

justification-for-transformation |
"Justification for why the data is parameterized or transformed (e.g., log-transformed)." | STRING | 0:1 | ||

repeated-measures-adjustment |
SYMBOL | Bonferroni Other None | |||

results |
"Points to collection of classes, grouped by all comparisons at a particular timepoint (e.g., 6 months). For study outcomes, the value of this slot are instances of ALL-COMPARISONS-AT-TIME-X (one instance for each timepoint). For BASELINEs, the value is BASELINE-COMPARISON." | Instance | All-comparisons-at-time-x | 1:* | |

summary-statistic-type |
"Type of summary statistic. In STATISTICAL-ANALYSIS-AND-RESULTS and REGRESSSION-ANALYSIS-AND-RESULTS, specifies the standard summary statistic used. In SUMMARY-DATAPOINT, other summary values (e.g., ARR in addition to OR) can also be provided." | SYMBOL | Odds Ratio Relative Risk Relative Risk Reduction Risk Ratio Hazard Ratio Rate Ratio Difference Score | 0:1 | |

p-level-threshold |
"The p-level at which statistical 'significance' is declared." | FLOAT | 0:1 | ||

difference-score? |
"Whether analysis of intrasubject differences was performed, e.g., difference within a subject on repeated measures of a test." | SYMBOL | Yes No | 0:1 | |

difference-score-results |
Instance | Single-time-x-comparison | 0:1 | ||

protocol-changes |
Instance | Protocol-change | |||

roles |
"Tells which class and slot will take instances of this class depending on the role of the instance. The format is (role OWNER-CLASS |owner-slot|) e.g., if this class is DATE and the instance's role is recruitment-start-date, (recruitment-start-date RECRUITMENT |start-date|) tells us that this instance of date should be the value of the slot |start-date| in an instance of class RECRUITMENT." | SYMBOL | 0:1 |
