This week on The Method Section, Tom is analysing p-values, are they significant enough to keep using? Ever since their introduction scientists have been both arguing for and against p-values due to peoples misunderstanding, misinterpretation and sometimes dishonest representation of them. Now with powerful technology available to perform more intense statistics, people question the relevance of the p-value! Music by: Joakim Karud – https://soundcloud.com/joakimkarud.
