After publication of this manuscript , it came to the attention of the authors that the manuscript contained an error in the equation and text on page 5. The corrected version is below.
Based on simplicity and the robustness to the CSMF composition of the test dataset, we propose to measure chance-corrected concordance for cause j (CCCj) as:
Where TP is true positives, FN is false negatives, and N is the number of causes, TP plus FN equals the true number of deaths from cause j.
The Publisher and authors apologize to the readers for any inconvenience caused.
