  • 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 = 21 recommendations used to calculate the estimates; CIs were calculated by using bootstrapping, n = 1000. The AAP guidelines were published in 2014; the CPS guidelines were published in 2014, the SIGN guidelines were published in 2006; the SNHS guidelines were published in 2010.
