# How Large Are Your G-Values? Try Gosset’s Guinnessometrics When a Little “p” Is Not Enough

@article{Ziliak2019HowLA, title={How Large Are Your G-Values? Try Gosset’s Guinnessometrics When a Little “p” Is Not Enough}, author={S. Ziliak}, journal={The American Statistician}, year={2019}, volume={73}, pages={281 - 290} }

Abstract A crisis of validity has emerged from three related crises of science, that is, the crises of statistical significance and complete randomization, of replication, and of reproducibility. Guinnessometrics takes commonplace assumptions and methods of statistical science and stands them on their head, from little p-values to unstructured Big Data. Guinnessometrics focuses instead on the substantive significance which emerges from a small series of independent and economical yet balanced… Expand
