deceiving ….

Continuing from earlier a quote on statistics from an interesting article:

The techniques of determining significance are a serious study in themselves, but the common sense cautions in using them may be summed up in two statements: a difference that does not make a difference is not a difference; and: there is a vast difference between something’s being statistically significant and something’s being important.[1]
