Exploratory Data Analysis for Complex Models
This article proposes an approach to unify exploratory data analysis with more formal statistical methods based on probability models, developed in the context of examples from fields including psychology, medicine, and social science. Expand
Computer aids and human second reading as interventions in screening mammography: two systematic reviews to compare effects on cancer detection and recall rate.
The evidence that double reading with arbitration enhances screening is stronger than that for single reading with CAD. Expand
The central role of the propensity score in observational studies for causal effects
Abstract : The results of observational studies are often disputed because of nonrandom treatment assignment. For example, patients at greater risk may be overrepresented in some treatment group.Expand

The proposed protocols will be useful for exploratory data analysis, with reference datasets simulated by using a null assumption that structure is absent, and teachers might find that incorporating these protocols into the curriculum improves their students’ statistical thinking. Expand
Single reading with computer-aided detection for screening mammography.
Single reading with computer-aided detection could be an alternative to double reading and could improve the rate of detection of cancer from screening mammograms read by a single reader. Expand
Mammography Reading with Computer-Aided Detection (CAD): Performance of Different Readers
The results show that the detection of cancers did not differ significantly between readers, although more experienced film readers were less likely to recommend that normal cases should be recalled. Expand
Effective communication of standard errors and confidence intervals.
When reporting estimates and associated standard errors (ses) or confidence intervals (CIs), the standard formats, “estimate (se)” and “estimate (95% CI: [lower, upper]),” can be confusing in text;Expand
EDA for HLM: Visualization when Probabilistic Inference Fails
Nearly all hierarchical linear models presented to political science audiences are estimated using maximum likelihood under a repeated sampling interpretation of the results of hypothesis tests.Expand
A statistical model for the temporal pattern of individual automated teller machine withdrawals
A random-effects point process model for automated teller machine withdrawals is developed that may be used to predict behaviour for an individual and to assess when state changes in individual behaviour have occurred and as a description of behaviour for a portfolio of accounts. Expand
Asymptotic Properties of Maximum Likelihood Estimators and Likelihood Ratio Tests under Nonstandard Conditions
Abstract Large sample properties of the likelihood function when the true parameter value may be on the boundary of the parameter space are described. Specifically, the asymptotic distribution ofExpand
