Medical Statistics and Medical Errors, Part I

The field of medical statistics is poorly understood by many doctors and by most patients. An article in the New England Journal of Medicine that surveyed over 100 articles published in reputable medical journals stated that over 50% of them used medical statistics incorrectly, and furthermore stated that this misuse invalidated the clinical conclusions of many of these articles. In this blog I will not discuss esoterica such as when to use a two-tailed t-test rather than a one-tailed test, or the uses and misuses of the Cox regression analysis. Instead I will try to point out fallacies in reasoning and statistics that should cause you to doubt a result quoted in the journal or in the newspapers.
