I have completed the polishing/correcting/fiddling of the eight statistical analysis related chapters of my evidence-based software engineering book, and an updated draft pdf is now available (download here). The material...continue reading.
Since publishing the monotonic binning function based upon the isotonic regression (https://statcompute.wordpress.com/2017/06/15/finer-monotonic-binning-based-on-isotonic-regression), I’ve received some feedback from peers. A potential concern is that, albeit improving the granularity and predictability, the...continue reading.
You can file this one under “I may have the very specific solution if you’re having exactly the same problem.” So: if you’re running some R code and you see...continue reading.
This note is just a quick follow-up to our last note on correcting the bias in estimated standard deviations for binomial experiments. For normal deviates there is, of course, a...continue reading.
by Angelika Stefan & Felix Schönbrodt Almost all researchers have experienced the tingling feeling of suspense that arises right before they take a look at long-awaited data: Will they support...continue reading.
Multiple comparisons of group-level means is a tricky problem in statistical inference. A standard practice is to adjust the threshold for statistical significance according to the number of pairwise tests...continue reading.
