In this talk, the most frequent statistical mistakes in scientific study design, analysis, and reporting will be discussed. The speaker will emphasize the significance of design methods such as blocking, blinding, randomization, and sample size, and the importance of connecting design to analysis.
She will also discuss the under-utilization of data transformations and summary statistics like geometric means, as well as the over-reliance on non-parametric tests, and how the selection of analysis method and excessive reliance on p-values can affect decision-making
