Seminar: The End of Statistical Significance?, Jan 18th

Seminar: The End of Statistical Significance?, Jan 18th

Category : News/Events

Though statisticians have long spoken out against rote use of null hypothesis significance testing (NHST) and thresholds for the declaration of “statistical significance” these calls have taken on new life and urgency in the past decade. In this talk, I will provide some background and history to the current movement to get science to a “post p<0.05” era, including recent developments. I will also present examples of what reform might look like. The goal is not to give final definitive answers, but rather to provoke thought and discussion to continue moving the conversation forward.

This seminar, by Dr. Nicole Lazar will take place on January 18th from 12-1 PM. Click here to attend the zoom session.

Dr. Nicole Lazar is Professor of Statistics and a member of the Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences, Penn State University. Prior to joining Penn State in 2020, she was a faculty member in the Departments of Statistics at Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Georgia. She has a BA in Psychology and Statistics from Tel Aviv University, an MS in Statistics from Stanford University, and a PhD in Statistics from the University of Chicago. Professor Lazar is past-Editor in Chief of “The American Statistician” and was the 2019 President of the Caucus for Women in Statistics. She has also served as the Chair of the Statistics in Imaging Section of the American Statistical Association. She is an elected member of the International Statistical Institute, a Fellow of the American Statistical Association, and a Fellow
of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics.
