Deficiency

The amount by which a project's cash flow is not adequate to meet debt service.

Deficiency

1. The amount by which cash flow falls short of debt service. For example, if a company has $300,000 in current liabilities and only $250,000 in cash flow for a given year, its deficiency is $50,000.

2. In taxation, the amount by which one's tax liability exceeds what the individual person or organization reported. For example, if the IRS disallows certain deductions that the taxpayer applied, he/she will owe more in taxes than he/she reported on the return. Deficiency is the amount this taxpayer still owes to the IRS.

deficiency

1. The amount by which an individual's or an organization's tax liability as computed by the Internal Revenue Service exceeds the tax liability reported by the taxpayer.
2. The amount by which a firm's liabilities exceed assets.

deficiency

The amount due on a mortgage loan after adding all expenses of foreclosure and accrued interest to the principal balance of the loan and then deducting the sale price or lender-bid price for the property. The balance remaining, if any, may be collected by the lender by means of taking a deficiency judgment, unless prohibited by law or contract. Deficiency judgments may be collected just like any other judgment, through seizure of other assets or garnishment. There are two circumstances when a lender may not collect any deficiency:

1. In states with consumer protection statutes that outlaw deficiencies on first mortgages on a borrower's principal residence.

2. With mortgage loans designated as nonrecourse, meaning the lender and borrower agreed in advance that the property would stand for the debt and there would be no deficiency allowed in the event of foreclosure.

The investigators suggest that early screening for MCADD reduces morbidity and mortality at an incremental cost below the range for established health care interventions.
Maryland reported three cases of MCADD for 2004-2005.

The number of evaluated features exceeded the number of instances in the learning set by far, especially in relation to the instances of class MCADD.
The inspection revealed that these constructed features achieved their high discriminatory performance by reducing the number of controls in the proximity of the MCADD cases in comparison to C8.
We acquired a sample of 5 MCADD and 168 controls, including 7 false-positive screened newborns with increased C8 concentrations, from the screening center in Hamburg, Germany.
From the external data sample, 1743 features achieved 100% sensitivity, whereas 4 features misclassified 1 MCADD case and reached only 80% sensitivity.
In this investigation, we demonstrated the usefulness of feature construction for improving the data representation for diagnostic criteria in newborn screening for MCADD.
With the use of BCIs for minimum values in the MCADD group, we introduced an approach to automatically select cutoffs with safety margins.
The safety level for correct classification of future MCADD cases can be controlled by choosing the confidence probability for the minimal value of a feature in the MCADD group.
In the quantile variant, the distribution of the MCADD cases is ignored, so the chosen quantile for binarization will lead to false negatives for features with insufficient initial discriminatory performance.
