3 YEARS AGO: (FEBRUARY 2012) MEMORY LANE

3 years ago...

3 years ago…

MONTHLY MEMORY LANE: 3 years ago: February 2012. I am to mark in red three posts (or units) that seem most apt for general background on key issues in this blog. Given our Fisher reblogs, we’ve already seen many this month. So, I’m marking in red (1) The Triad, and (2) the Unit on Spanos’ misspecification tests. Plase see those posts for their discussion. The two posts from 2/8 are apt if you are interested in a famous case involving statistics at the Supreme Court. Beyond that it’s just my funny theatre of the absurd piece with Barnard. (Gelman’s is just a link to his blog.)

One thought on “3 YEARS AGO: (FEBRUARY 2012) MEMORY LANE

  1. I’m continually amazed that with all the handwringing about p-values these days that people almost never talk about how ruinous to error probabilities failed assumptions are. My colleague, Aris Spanos, has shown glaring flaws in the statistical models being used in economics, and on which crucial policy decisions are based. Ioannidis seems also to have overlooked this glaring source of unreliability in his focus on poor predictions from research findings that are based on a single .05 p-value coupled with all manner of selection biases.
