Assignment
Q1-Q3
Withindata set 1, how many correlations are statistically significant (according to the customary p<0.05 definition)Ifyou do not apply any sort of post-hoc control?If you use BonferroniIf you useBenjamini&Hochberg
Q4
What is the correlation with the lowest p-value that comes up significant for B&H but not for Bonferroni?
Q5-Q7
Withindata set2,how many correlations are statistically significant (according to the customary p<0.05 definition)Ifyou do not apply any sort of post-hoc control?If you use BonferroniIf you useBenjamini&Hochberg
Q8
What is the lowest correlation that is still statistically significant, according to Bonferroni’s test?
Why were the “lowest significant correlations” so different between data sets?
Q9
Question 9:Now do you see why Professor Baker says that statistical significance doesn’t matter much for really big data sets? (and this is NOT a big data set by reckoning in other fields)Yes– Bonferroni is ridiculously conservative with 1,112 tests, and yet correlations that are absurdly small still come up statistically significant.No. I think the answer to Question 9 is a fine correlation, perfectly likely to represent a large effect size.No. Big data is a FAD. No one should ever expect to work with a data set over 150 data points, especially after the societal collapse predicted by James Howard Kunstler occurs.
