How Do They Know My Opinion?
Interim 2000

Where are we so far?

Our first two days have focussed mainly on the first of three components of statistical studies: Here are some highlights:
  1. Many problems with statistical studies are not mathematical. (7 critical components)
  2. You can't do good statistics unless you start with good data.
  3. Good samples must be
  4. There are fundamental differences between observational studies and experiments.

Where to next?

Phase Two (data analysis): What do we do with all this data once we have it?

We will continue to revisit data collection issues as they arrise.
