  • Pairwise κ estimates between 2 guidelines and overall κ estimate with the corresponding 95% CIs. The values below the diagonal are unweighted κ scores, and the values above the diagonal are weighted κ scores. N = 69 recommendations used to calculate the estimates; CIs were calculated by using bootstrapping, n = 1000. The GINA guidelines were published 2014; the AAH guidelines were published in 2014; The CTS guidelines were published in 2012; the CPS guidelines were published in 2012; the SIGN and BTS guidelines were published in 2014; the NHLBI and NAEPP guidelines were published in 2007, and the ACCP and American College of Asthma, Allergy, and Immunology guidelines were published in 2005.
