    Can a ratio of performance be used to measure dependence and assign weights in a weighted average?

    I see - thanks for the info and I appreciate the help, although I'm afraid the parallels are purely coincidental! I don't have a much of a statistical background so I'm unfamiliar with a lot of the common knowledge. On the plus side, I'm learning a lot from my self-help stats books. It seems to...

    Can a ratio of performance be used to measure dependence and assign weights in a weighted average?

    Thanks for your input, I hadn't come across 'blocking' before. Please correct me if I'm wrong but from what I gather this would involve splitting the data. If so, the purpose of assigning weights in the scenario in the OP would be to make use of a larger amount of data as splitting into...

    Can a ratio of performance be used to measure dependence and assign weights in a weighted average?

    With only a modest grasp of inferential stats and maths in general, I've been wondering how one might derive the weights for a weighted average from a variable that isn't as straightforward as a frequency score. Consider the following scenario. Let's say I have measurements of effectiveness for...
