Figure 3

Estimated versus true cause fractions for AIDS, maternal, pneumonia, and drowning in adults in 500 random resamplings of the validation dataset. Causes like pneumonia were overestimated when rare but underestimated when common, while causes like drowning were estimated with accuracy that does not depend closely on true cause fraction.
