P-values obtained by comparing the accuracy of the highest ranking scoring criterion (scoreα = 15) with the next five highest ranking scoring criteria using the McNemar chi-square test. Each p-value is obtained by comparing the accuracies for 2,000 data sets generated by the hardest-to-detect models.
