My daily review (blogs, news, papers, plots) exposed me to a few things that I looked up, and this is a capture of some links.
- Thomas Basbøll will like this post (analogy between common—indeed, inevitable—mistakes in drawing, and inevitable mistakes in statistical reasoning).. From Andrew Gelman. Examples of summarizing data.
- The Millennium Villages Project: a retrospective, observational, endline evaluation. Andrew’s example of how to do it. Worth studying for the research approach and statistical analysis.
- The failure of null hypothesis significance testing when studying incremental changes, and what to do about it. Andrew Gelman. Section 2.2 shows what not to do.
Some public health related references I looked up when reading the Millenium Villages Project study above.
