The Nerdiest Debate of the Century

Taken from google

Cause no 1: Misinterpretation of P value

Cause no 2: The imaginary threshold of 0.05

Does it mean we should abandon p value altogether?

What can we do?

Taken from google
  • using p value and hypothesis testing only as a quick litmus test for your hypothesis — whether we should change the null hypothesis or dive deeper into the findings
  • involving Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) in every step along the way
  • using other metrics as conclusive significance testing
  • complementing the standard Null Hypothesis Significance Testing with bayesians’ hypothesis testing⁴
