Ryan Pohlig to Discuss p-Values' Role in Modern Social Science Research

“The Report of My Death was an Exaggeration: p-Values' Role in Modern Social Science Research"

Recently, poorly conducted research has become a "hot topic" in the social and health sciences. Attempts to move these fields into more rigorous scientific directions have criticized the standard practice of reporting p-values. This talk will cover a few ways that researchers should be aware of for manipulating p-values, and how to avoid making these (sometimes inadvertent) errors in your own work.
