### Member Training: The Anatomy of an ANOVA Table

December 31st, 2019 by

Our analysis of linear regression focuses on parameter estimates, z-scores, p-values and confidence levels. Rarely in regression do we see a discussion of the estimates and F statistics given in the ANOVA table above the coefficients and p-values.

And yet, they tell you a lot about your model and your data. Understanding the parts of the table and what they tell you is important for anyone running any regression or ANOVA model.

### Member Training: How to Avoid Common Graphical Mistakes

December 1st, 2019 by

Good graphs are extremely powerful tools for communicating quantitative information clearly and accurately.

Unfortunately, many of the graphs we see today confuse, mislead, or deceive the reader.

These poor graphs result from two key limitations. One is a graph designer who isn’t familiar with the principles of effective graphs. The other is software with a poor choice of default settings.

### Member Training: Writing Up Statistical Results: Basic Concepts and Best Practices

July 1st, 2019 by

Many of us love performing statistical analyses but hate writing them up in the Results section of the manuscript. We struggle with big-picture issues (What should I include? In what order?) as well as minutia (Do tables have to be double-spaced?). (more…)

### Member Training: Communicating Statistical Results: When to Use Tables vs Graphs to Tell the Data’s Story

May 1st, 2016 by

In this webinar, we’ll discuss when tables and graphs are (and are not) appropriate and how people engage with each of these media.

Then we’ll discuss design principles for  good tables and graphs and review examples that meet these principles. Finally, we’ll show that the choice between tables and graphs is not always dichotomous: tables can be incorporated into graphs and vice versa.

Participants will learn how to bring more thoughtfulness to the process of deciding when to use tables and when to use graphs in their work. They will also learn about design principles and examples they can adopt to create better tables and graphs.

Note: This training is an exclusive benefit to members of the Statistically Speaking Membership Program and part of the Stat’s Amore Trainings Series. Each Stat’s Amore Training is approximately 90 minutes long.

### Argggh! How Do I Output Tables and Graphs From Stata?

October 24th, 2014 by

For my first assignment using Stata, I spent four or five hours trying to present my output in a “professional” form. The most creative method I heard about in class the next day was to copy the contents into Excel, create page breaks, and then copy into Word.

SPSS makes it so easy to copy tables and graphs into another document. Why can’t Stata be easy?

Anyone who has used Stata has gone through this and many of you still are. No worries, help is on the way! (more…)
