Ask the Statistician

Here’s your opportunity to receive an answer to a statistical question!

Questions should be short and not require an excessive amount of time to answer.  A good question is something like, “I want to know if a new method for making widgets is better than the old method.  Do I need to have equal numbers of widgets made using each of the two methods?”  A bad question would be, “Here’s a data set.  Will you analyze it for me?”

Answering questions is done solely at my discretion.  If you submit a question, and I choose to answer it, you agree to have your question and my response posted here.
