"The statistical error that just keeps on coming"

Post  John on Wed Sep 14, 2011 11:56 am

Here's an article summarizing a common statistical error "so widespread it appears in about half of all the published papers surveyed from the academic psychology research literature."

From the article: "The same statistical errors – namely, ignoring the "difference in differences" – are appearing throughout the most prestigious journals in neuroscience"


Also, here's an article on a related subject: http://dionysus.psych.wisc.edu/coursewebsites/PSY710/Readings/MillerG2001a.pdf
