    Continuity Corrections

    They attempt to correct for the lack of continuity. End of discussion?

    Running simulations in R

    They might just use a uniform distribution within that specified range to simulate from that then.

    Running simulations in R

    Yeah so you just need to simulate some data using rnorm or whatever function you want to create samples from the distributions of interest.

    Probability Puzzle - Do angels exist?

    Of course they're real. The barman giving you a beer on the house is an angel.

    Running simulations in R

    There might be packages for specific examples but in general you don't need packages to do simulations unless you're simulating from a specific distribution that isn't provide in base R.

    Interpreting dummy variables.

    Noetsi. You understand that one group must have the lowest average right? And that the parameter estimates are the estimated differences between the averages? So if the lowest group is chosen as the reference group then all of the differences will be positive right?

    Best software for organizing journal articles?

    In the past I used Mendeley to organize articles. I was just wondering what everybody else is using and if there are any better recommendations? I appreciate any and all feedback.

    Ideal level of confidence/certainty

    If you're looking to do a cost/benefit analysis then at the very least you would need to know how much you would win if you do in fact win and how much it cost to play. You haven't indicated knowing either of those so it seems a bit undefined at the moment.

    Binomial tests

    And just to check - you have access to the original counts and not just the proportions right?

    Why do you need oversampling/undersampling?

    Sometimes a false positive means somebody is very slightly inconvenienced and a false negative means somebody might die. In some cases it's important to have a model that can hopefully identify cases that might have a chance of being a the event you're looking for.

    Numbers of double-headed, double-tailed, and normal coins based on one toss per coin

    It's the 4th and I've had a few drinks but ... Is anybody really that concerned that when n=1 we might not be able to do great?

    Numbers of double-headed, double-tailed, and normal coins based on one toss per coin

    I mean... In this situation yes that is the MLE. Really though we are in a situation with one sample. We need more data to get a better estimate. Side note: I don't really hold grudges - I was just giving you **** because you decided to give me **** previously :p - nothing personal I just...

    Numbers of double-headed, double-tailed, and normal coins based on one toss per coin

    I'll need to look into it further. Based on recent actions I do not trust fed2 in the slightest.

    Numbers of double-headed, double-tailed, and normal coins based on one toss per coin

    Jumping in late... But I'm guessing it's not possible to get a second sample from the 100 coins?

    Hi! We are glad that you posted here! This looks like a homework question though. Our homework help policy can be found here. We mainly just want to see what you have tried so far and that you have put some effort into the problem. I would also suggest checking out this thread for some...

    Trouble connecting to R

    Well then read your data. Make some coffee. Store it locally for faster reads later. If it makes you feel better I have some data that takes 1-2 hours to download from our servers. I don't even consider it extremely large.
