The point-biserial correlation is a commonly used measure of effect size in two-group designs. New estimators of point-biserial correlation are derived from different forms of a standardized mean difference. Point-biserial correlations are defined for designs with either fixed or random group sample sizes and can accommodate unequal variances. Confidence intervals and standard errors for the point-biserial correlation estimators are derived from the sampling distributions for pooled-variance…

COCOA: COrrelation COefficient-Aware Data Augmentation

This paper introduces an index structure that ensures rank-based correlation calculation in a linear time and accelerates the correlation calculation up to 500 times in the data enrichment setting.

Parent-child Relations, Religiousness, and Adolescent Substance Use Disorders

Research has shown that parent-child relationships and religiousness are negatively associated with substance use among adolescents, but few studies have addressed their relationship with substance

Matching Variables with the Appropriate Statistical Tests in Counseling Research

Authors aimed to provide a succinct overview of matching variables with appropriate statistical tests and provide strategies counselor educators can use to enhance their pedagogy.

Ensemble Feature Selection in Binary Machine Learning Classification: A Novel Application of the Evaluation Based on Distance from Average Solution (EDAS) Method

This paper is the first to demonstrate the applicability of EDAS as an ensemble FS algorithm, and one of the few works to demonstrate how MCDM can be used in feature selection with promising results.

Comparison of Machine-Learning Algorithms for the Prediction of Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) Codes from Pathology Reports

This work utilized advanced topic modeling to identify topics that characterize a cohort of 93,039 pathology reports at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, and generated CPT code predictions with an accuracy higher than previously reported.

Associations of non-HDL-C and triglyceride/HDL-C ratio with coronary plaque burden and plaque characteristics in young adults

Serum non-HDL-C levels and TG/ HDL-C ratios were significantly associated with the presence and burden of coronary plaques, suggesting their use as easy-to-compute markers for identifying high-risk groups in young adults.



The Effects of Nonnormal Distributions on Confidence Intervals Around the Standardized Mean Difference: Bootstrap and Parametric Confidence Intervals

The standardized group mean difference, Cohen’s d, is among the most commonly used and intuitively appealing effect sizes for group comparisons. However, reporting this point estimate alone does not

Confidence intervals for standardized linear contrasts of means.

The proposed confidence interval methods are easy to compute, do not require equal population variances, and perform better than the currently available methods when the populationvariances are not equal.

The distinctive feature of this approach is its acknowledgment of the asymmetry of sampling distributions for single correlations, which requires only the availability of confidence limits for the separate correlations and a method for taking into account the dependency between correlations.

Beyond the F test: Effect size confidence intervals and tests of close fit in the analysis of variance and contrast analysis.

Confidence interval methods for improving on the standard F tests in the balanced, completely between-subjects, fixed-effects analysis of variance are presented.

Meta-analytic interval estimation for bivariate correlations.

A new fixed-effects meta-analytic confidence interval for bivariate correlations is proposed that is easy to compute and performs well under correlation heterogeneity and nonrandomly selected studies.

L. Wilkinson and the Task Force on Statistical Inference (1999) recommended reporting confidence intervals for measures of effect sizes. If the sample size is too small, the confidence interval may

When effect sizes disagree: the case of r and d.

The authors demonstrate the issue by focusing on two popular effect-size measures, the correlation coefficient and the standardized mean difference, both of which can be used when one variable is dichotomous and the other is quantitative.

Varying coefficient meta-analysis methods for odds ratios and risk ratios.

The results of extensive simulation studies suggest that the proposed varying coefficient methods have excellent performance characteristics under realistic conditions and should provide useful alternatives to the currently used meta-analysis methods.
