Abstract : This research contribution consists of a series of eight memoranda originally published by the Statistical Research Group at Columbia University for the National Defense Research Committee in 1943 on methods of estimating the vulnerability of various parts of an aircraft based on damage to surviving planes. The methodology presented continues to be valuable in defense analysis and, therfore, has been reprinted by the Center for Naval Analyses in order to achieve wider dissemination…

Abraham Wald's Work on Aircraft Survivability
Abstract While he was a member of the Statistical Research Group (SRG), Abraham Wald worked on the problem of estimating the vulnerability of aircraft, using data obtained from survivors. This work
The Most Dangerous Profession: A Note on Nonsampling Error
Nonsampling errors are subtle, and strategies for dealing with them are not particularly well known within psychology. This article provides a compelling example of an incorrect conclusion drawn from
Causality in the Time of Cholera: John Snow As a Prototype for Causal Inference
The story of John Snow's 1855 treatise "On the mode of communication of cholera" is a rollicking good tale – full of heroism, death, and statistics. But more fundamentally Snow's work is a sustained
Human Performance Contributions to Safety in Commercial Aviation
In the commercial aviation domain, large volumes of data are collected and analyzed on the failures and errors that result in infrequent incidents and accidents, but in the absence of data on
EELWORMS, BULLET HOLES, AND GERALDINE FERRARO
There is no safety in numbers. When data are gathered from a sample in which the selection criteria are unknown many problems can befall the unwary investigator. In this paper we explore some of
Managing Innovation in View of the Uncertainties
Study of the problems of uncertainty in innovation is at present the most up to date. Approaches to its definition, arranged primarily on the assumption and include the known parameters, which
Eelworms, Bullet Holes, and Geraldine Ferraro: Some Problems With Statistical Adjustment and Some Solutions
TLDR
The principle example is drawn from data from students who choose to take the College Board’s Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), and methods of covariance adjustment as well as more explicitly model-based adjustment methods are explored.
What catch data can tell us about the status of global fisheries
TLDR
It is shown explicitly that trends in catch data are not an artifact of the applied method and are consistent with trends in biomass data of fully assessed stocks, and that, while comprehensive stock assessments are the preferred method for evaluating single stocks, they are a biased subsample of the stocks in a given area, strongly underestimating the percentage of collapsed stocks.
Worrisome trends in global stock status continue unabated: a response to a comment by R.M. Cook on “What catch data can tell us about the status of global fisheries”
TLDR
It seems justified to assume that in a majority of fisheries, catch levels of 0.5–1.0 Cmax are indicative of fully exploited stocks, and this assumption leads to the logical conclusion that the maximum catch that can be taken from a stock is related to its size.
Causes of Misleading Statistics and Research Results Irreproducibility: A Concise Review
TLDR
This paper reviews different bad practices that impact the research process from its beginning to its very end and proposes open science as a universal methodology that can facilitate the entire research life cycle.
