Statistical mistakes

Statistical mistakes, misunderstandings, and poor statistical practices are unfortunately common in biomedical research, often with severe consequences for the validity of the results. It is thus important for researchers, readers, authors, reviewers, and editors to be able to recognize common methodological errors.

This website includes a collection of literature references to published reviews of statistical mistakes and their frequencies, guidelines on how to avoid common mistakes, and templates for statistical reviewer comments on the mistakes. The information has been collected and compiled by Jonas Ranstam for facilitating statistical reviewing and is maintained in the hope of contributing to improved design of research studies, better statistical analyses of data, clearer report writing, more critical interpretation of the findings presented in published reports.

The site is under constant development and new parts are under construction. Check back soon.
