Statistical factors that contribute to non-reproducibility of science
Pizza lunch will be provided (available at 1:00pm)
This talk examines two factors that lead to the misrepresentation or misinterpretation of scientific studies. The first factor involves the information conveyed in the report of p-values that are marginally significant at the 0.05 level. The second factor involves omission of information regarding the prior or marginal probability that a tested hypothesis is true.
