  1. Accurate prediction: the percentage of subjects predicted by this predictive equation within 10% of the measured value
  2. Underprediction: the percentage of subjects predicted by this predictive equation <10% of the measured value
  3. Overprediction: the percentage of subjects predicted by this predictive equation > 10% of the measured value
