1. ### How to calculate and what model should I use?

OK you have clearly put a lot of work into the execution of this trial, and I would have thought you can obtain not only your thesis, but also a publication in a peer reviewed social sciences journal. However certainly before analysing for publication, you would need a statisticians involvement...
2. ### Applying 2 PDFs - 1 for demand and 1 for duration

Nerd humour, but oh so good - I am chuckling away here on the other side of the world. R and Stata are definitely my poisons, but as someone once stated (I'll have to paraphrase), no one asks an author what brand of typewriter they use. Would you mind @fed2 just explaining a couple of things...
3. ### How to calculate and what model should I use?

OK it is starting to look like what i would refer to as balanced panel data (ballance meaning each couple participant has ecactly the same number of data entries), and simple logistic regression doesn't sound appropriate. Is each maze completely different to the others or is any maze repeated...

Thank you very much for your time including the simulation. I can't say SAS is something I am overly familiar with, but I believe I can follow it.
5. ### How to calculate and what model should I use?

OK that is clearer, but you also need to outline multiple things to receive sensible advice by pair, do you mean human couple, or paired data? If paired data, exactly how is it paired? What do you mean "success of game having two levels"? Do you mean your primary outcome/dependent variable is...
6. ### How to calculate and what model should I use?

Not a statistician, but I think you need to describe more about this quantification of sentiment. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines sentiment as a : an attitude, thought, or judgment prompted by feeling : predilection b : a specific view or notion : opinion a : emotion b : refined...
7. ### Please help me choose the appropriate test for a directional hypothesis

Not a statistician here, but a ranksum is explained really nicely and easily in the Wikipedia entry (which is not necessarily the case for a number of statistics topics in Wikipedia). The test is helping you infer whether the distributions are different. Rightly or wrongly, i would usually give...
8. ### Fun (im)probability question!

no worries - post the details here when the novel is published!
9. ### Fun (im)probability question!

I am NOT a statistician, but have some limited understanding. Given no one has yet answered, I'll put in my 2 cents and let the experts correct me. The initial assumptions: 4 million people is a pretty narrow age group of internet users. This quora question guestimated 6.85% of the week is...
10. ### Applying 2 PDFs - 1 for demand and 1 for duration

This is theoretical to help my understanding of stats, but not homework/coursework. if I have a (lets say) a kayak rental business which is open 24/7 and has no hourly variation in the parameters outlined below, and The number of customers approaching the stall to rent a kayak each hour...
