# False Negative Error Rate

(Redirected from False Negative Rate)

A False Negative Error Rate is a classification performance measure that is based on the probability that a predictive relation will make the incorrect prediction of mapping a false test instance to a negative prediction.

**AKA:**FNR, Type 2 Error Rate.**Context:****Example(s):**- The likelihood that a patient with cancer will be told that they do not have it.

The “power” (or the “sensitivity") of the test is equal to 1−β.
