Features basic statistical concepts as a tool for thinking critically, wading through large quantities of information, and answering practical, everyday questions
Written in an engaging and inviting manner, Beyond Basic Statistics: Tips, Tricks, and Techniques Every Data Analyst Should Know presents the more subjective side of statistics—the art of data analytics. Each chapter explores a different question using fun, common sense examples that illustrate the concepts, methods, and applications of...]]>2015-05-29T00:00:00ZWinners announced for the Statistical Excellence in the Pharmaceutical Industry Awards
http://www.statisticsviews.com/details/news/7966521/Winners-announced-for-the-Statistical-Excellence-in-the-Pharmaceutical-Industry-.html
The Statistical Excellence in the Pharmaceutical Industry Awards were presented to 2015's winners at the PSI Conference last week (12 May 2015).
Katrina Gore of Pfizer was nominated joint prize winner for her contribution to the development of the Assay Capability Tool (ACT), designed to guide the development of drug discovery assays and to address issues of robustness and reproducibility in research. It has been implemented globally across the PharmaTherapeutics Division of Pfizer. "The ACT promotes...]]>2015-05-22T13:00:00ZSubmissions open for the 2015 ECM Catherine Richards Prize

http://www.statisticsviews.com/details/journalArticle/7967081/Continuous-versus-group-sequential-analysis-for-postmarket-drug-and-vaccine-safe.html
Summary
The use of sequential statistical analysis for post‐market drug safety surveillance is quickly emerging. Both continuous and
group sequential analysis have been used, but consensus is lacking as to when to use which approach. We compare the statistical
performance of continuous and group sequential analysis in terms of type I error probability; statistical power; expected
time to signal when the null...]]>2015-05-22T09:49:05ZStructured Coupling of Probability Loss Distributions: Assessing Joint Flood Risk in Multiple River Basins
http://www.statisticsviews.com/details/journalArticle/7967051/Structured-Coupling-of-Probability-Loss-Distributions-Assessing-Joint-Flood-Risk.html
Losses due to natural hazard events can be extraordinarily high and difficult to cope with. Therefore, there is considerable
interest to estimate the potential impact of current and future extreme events at all scales in as much detail as possible.
As hazards typically spread over wider areas, risk assessment must take into account interrelations between regions. Neglecting
such interdependencies can lead to a severe underestimation of...]]>2015-05-22T06:01:12ZModeling Finite‐Time Failure Probabilities in Risk Analysis Applications
http://www.statisticsviews.com/details/journalArticle/7967061/Modeling-FiniteTime-Failure-Probabilities-in-Risk-Analysis-Applications.html
In this article, we introduce a framework for analyzing the risk of systems failure based on estimating the failure probability.
The latter is defined as the probability that a certain risk process, characterizing the operations of a system, reaches a
possibly time‐dependent critical risk level within a finite‐time interval. Under general assumptions, we define two dually
connected models for the risk process and derive explicit...]]>2015-05-22T05:59:37ZiGWAS: Integrative Genome‐Wide Association Studies of Genetic and Genomic Data for Disease Susceptibility Using Mediation Analysis
http://www.statisticsviews.com/details/journalArticle/7967071/iGWAS-Integrative-GenomeWide-Association-Studies-of-Genetic-and-Genomic-Data-for.html
ABSTRACT
Genome‐wide association studies (GWAS) have been a standard practice in identifying single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs)
for disease susceptibility. We propose a new approach, termed integrative GWAS (iGWAS) that exploits the information of gene
expressions to investigate the mechanisms of the association of SNPs with a disease phenotype, and to incorporate the family‐based
design for genetic association studies....]]>2015-05-22T02:16:53ZLogic and Discrete Mathematics: A Concise Introduction
http://www.statisticsviews.com/details/book/7918261/Logic-and-Discrete-Mathematics-A-Concise-Introduction.html
A concise yet rigorous introduction to logic and discrete
mathematics.
This book features a unique combination of comprehensive
coverage of logic with a solid exposition of the most important
fields of discrete mathematics, presenting material that has been
tested and refined by the authors in university courses taught over
more than a decade.
The chapters on logic - propositional and first-order -
provide a robust toolkit for logical reasoning, emphasizing
the conceptual understanding of...]]>2015-05-22T00:00:00Z
