Rethinking

I have come across another jewel in the firmanent. There has been an increasing recognition of the prevalence of reliance on p-values and other related issues of statistical rigor in conduct and reporting in, particularly, biomedical science.

Professor McElreath provides an excellent lecture series to complement his book. There are a number of resources made available. Perhaps, it may not be relevant to all disciplines. Any steps towards a more thoughtful and critical appraisal of knowledge and our interpretations and inferences should be applauded. I believe this is such an endeavour. This has never been more important as “big data” increasingly interacts with our lives.
