Making sense of statistics

Making sense of statistical methods takes time to learn, especially choosing what statistical methods go with your research.

These resources present information that can help you learn to think about and choose the right statistics.

Lectures: Making sense of statistics (2022)

These lectures were created for Medical students in 2022. 

In the first lecture, David discussed what statistics is used for, the types of questions it can answer, and the information that helps you decide which hypothesis test to use.

In the second lecture, David continued discussion of different statistical procedures, then discussed very rough sample size calculations (since anything more precise is beyond the scope of the MLC's ability to provide).
