CDC Science Clips: Volume 12, Issue 10, March 24, 2020
Science Clips is produced weekly to enhance awareness of emerging scientific knowledge for the public health community. Each article features an Altmetric Attention scoreexternal icon to track social and mainstream media mentions!
This week Science Clips is pleased to feature articles on the topic of p-Values.
The American Statistical Association released a statement on p-Values and statistical inference in 2016, catalyzing conversations about statistical applications and literacy throughout the scientific community. In March 2019, The American Statistician released a special issue containing an introductory editorial that expanded from the 2016 statement and provided more specific guidance for using p-Values and “statistical significance” in analyses and reports. Following the introduction were 43 articles to offer p-Value complements, supplements, and replacements, as well as guidance for presenting statistical results in scientific reports.
There is no consensus in the statistical community about the best methods to move forward, although there is consensus that it is time to reconsider current usage of p-values in the scientific literature. This Science Clips compilation comprises the American Statistical Association statements, select articles from the special issue of The American Statistician, and public health research articles that applied supplemental measures to p-Values. This compilation does not endorse these particular methods, but rather highlights the variety of methods for researchers to consider in order to adopt the American Statistical Association’s latest recommendations.
- Key Scientific Articles in Featured Topic
Subject matter experts decide what topic to feature, and articles are selected from the last 3 to 6 months of published literature. Key topic coincides monthly with other CDC products (e.g. Vital Signs).
