## Favorite statistics resources

A running list of some of my favorite online statistics resources - including blog posts, visualizations, interactive simulations, and text books. Blog posts & cheat sheets Common statistical tests are linear models: A really clear explanation of how many common statistical tests can be conceptualized as types of linear regressions. An Introduction to Hierarchical Modeling:… Continue reading Favorite statistics resources

## Interaction analyses – Appropriately adjusting for control variables (part 4)

In an interaction analysis, the probability of a false-positive result increases as the correlation between our covariate and predictor increases, and as the effect of our covariate x predictor interaction increases. The extremely simple solution is to include all covariate-by-predictor interactions in your model!

## A quick intro to block permutations and bootstraps for analyzing hierarchical data

Clustered data - such as multiple observations per individual, animal, or cell - are quite common in neuroscience research. Here I walk through an introduction to one approach to adjusting your analyses for clustering - block permutations and bootstrapping - that is widely applicable and makes very few assumptions.

## Correlates of rock climbing ability

Here is my analysis of 'what correlates with how well someone climbs?'.

## Interaction analyses – How large a sample do I need? (part 3)

If my sample is just barely large enough to detect my main effect, the smallest interaction that I can reasonably expect is a knockout effect.

## Interaction analyses – Interpreting effect sizes (part 2)

For an interaction effect size bXM, the difference between the simple-slopes of the top and bottom quartiles Q will be approximately: bXM * (ln(Q) +1)

## Interaction analyses – Power (part 1)

In this series I try to convey a couple of insights about power for interactions in linear regressions. First, how to do a power analysis for a interaction in a linear regression (this post), then interpreting the effect size of a interaction (part 2), and finally thinking about how large (or small) an effect size it is reasonable to plan for (part 3).
