S4E11 The Centrality of Noncentral Distributions


In today’s episode, Patrick and Greg talk about those critical distributions that often go un-discussed — noncentral distributions — including their relation to the more familiar central distributions, their role in power and sample size determination, and how they are used in assessing data-model fit. Along the way they also mention back porch reading, latent class of one, statistical concepts as personality characteristics,  double doink, Brilliant!, cocktail party banter, reaching into your d-bag, Minitab macros, sucking good practice out of your field, Patrick’s most boring paper, before horses were invented, and throwing down your guitar.
