Validating a Cardiovascular Disease Microsimulation Model

2017

This paper examines a cardiovascular disease model used to evaluate prevention and treatment of the disease. The authors perform a calibration and validation process, in which simulated results were compared to observed all-cause and CVD-specific mortality data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. Comparison was conducted using survival curves and ROC curves.
