It seemed like these tags might sometimes get confused, can the excerpts be improved?

    $\begingroup$ How is en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sensitivity_index a synonym of en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sensitivity_and_specificity#Sensitivity ? It's two unrelated things. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ But to prevent confusion, it might make sense to merge [sensitivity] and [specificity] into [sensitivity-specificity], like Wikipedia does. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @amoeba: Yes I'm stupid, I rewrote the question to just say how do we prevent them getting confused. Should you separately post your merge suggestion on [sensitivity-specificity]? $\endgroup$

I propose:

  1. We create a new tag [sensitivity-specificity], as @amoeba suggested. We make the existing tags, and synonyms of this and merge them. (We will first need to ensure that the threats tagged with are correct, of course.) Note that we have a tag for , so combining has some precedent.
  2. We create a tag for [sensitivity-index], and make it a synonym of [d-prime].
  3. I think the excerpt for [sensitivity-analysis] is largely correct (cf., my answer here: Wiki excerpt for [sensitivity-analysis] tag?), but the excerpt could possibly be clarified.

    $\begingroup$ +1. I edited d-prime excerpt and wiki to say "also called sensitivity index" instead of "also called sensitivity". $\endgroup$
