I'd only said that hi...Thanks so much for this! I'd only said that his name "graced" the correction, but I see the sentence you mean about him that wasn't right and I deleted it. I'm particularly grateful you pointed this out, as it led me to hunt out who first worked on it. I've added her papers.<br /><br />Thanks so much for your feedback on the description of statistical difference. Finding a way to describe it in plain language that's still right is tough - but your specific suggestions showed me a way to have a go at it that I'm really happy with. If you can see this comment, I'd be grateful for any further feedback on the new version.<br /><br />Changed "test" to "measure" for FDR.<br /><br />Thanks for taking the time to make this comment!Hilda Bastianhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/01418954331826160477noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6353097553819934624.post-7664213117014324492016-03-20T03:03:47.778-04:002016-03-20T03:03:47.778-04:00I agree with the spirit of the post, but there are...I agree with the spirit of the post, but there are a few incorrect statements. First of all, Bonferroni didn't invent the Bonferroni procedure, it's just named after him. Also, the p-value is not the probability of a difference being an anomaly, nor does it indicate 1 minus the probability of a similar result in "similar sets of data." Both of those probabilities are unknown. Rather, the p-value is the what the probability of seeing the observed difference would have been if the "real" difference in the population as a whole were zero. Additionally, the false discovery rate (FDR) is not a test, but rather a rate, as the name implies.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
