Statistical Factors that Contribute to Non-reproducibility of Science
With Valen Johnson, University Distinguished Professor, Texas A&M University. 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.
