1. ### Reporting Fisher's exact test (chi squared test)

Hello, I have conducted some chi squared tests but because the assumption for "minimum expected cell frequency" was violated, I'm using the value for Fisher's exact. However, I don't know how I can report the output. For example, the normal chi squared would be reported like this: χ2 (1...
2. ### Wilcoxon rank-sum test report results when Mdns are the same

I understand that Medians should be reported when writing results of Wilcoxon rank-sum test. For example: "For alcohol users depression levels were significantly lower on Wednesday (Mdn = 7.50) than on Sunday (Mdn = 16.0), p = .012, r = −.45." But suppose that p=.012 but Mdn=7.50 on Wednesday...
3. ### Reporting a significant interaction

Hi! I am struggling on how to report a significant categorical x continuous interaction, which I found using a negative binomial regression. I have posted the output from STATA below. So far, I have said something along the lines of, "there was a significant lang2 by emotdys3 interaction term...
4. ### Different degrees of freedom when reporting multiple T-tests

Please refer to Table attached. This study compares those without a phobic disorder (n=83) with those with a phobic disorder (n=16) on Temperament scores. What I am confused about, is the reporting of the degrees of freedom: shouldn't the degrees of freedom all be the same number (i.e., n -...
5. ### Nonparametric regression using kernel weights

Hi! I am wondering how I can present the results of nonparametric regression. I performed the nonparametric tests using R, and R package 'np'. The commands used for this are ) Using the last command, 'npsigtest', I get results like this How do I present this data in a scientific...
6. ### Report insignificant results negative binomial

Hello everyone, I've used a negative binomial model to predict invertebrate densities. The model fits but is not significant, so I don't want to waste space with a graph in my final report. I want to make simple table showing the coefficients and p values. Does anyone have an example...
7. ### HELP! 4x2 Mixed Design ANOVA Post Hoc Tests

Hi all, I'm a PhD student and for my most recent study I conducted a 4 (experimental condition) x 2 (emotion type) mixed design ANOVA with repeated measures on the last variable. I followed the steps in Andy Field's textbook and companion website, conducting and interpreting my results...
8. ### chi-square test of independence sig but all post-hoc not--how to report?

I am conducting chi-square tests of independence and for any that are significant I am conducting Bonferroni adjusted post-hoc tests. I have a couple of cases where the original test is significant but none of the post-hoc tests are significant. What is the correct way to report this?
9. ### Random effects model in stata - how sensitive to non parametric assumptions

Hi, I am using a random effects model to analyse a 4 point time series longitudinal data to compare the effects of an intervention and control, some of my independent variables are non-parametrically distributed - how sensitive is random effects model to this? can i use it or should i perform a...
10. ### To report or not to report posthocs for a 'back up' test

Short version - I have run some non-parametric tests (Friedman) as sort of backup to a ANOVA because of an assumption violation - should I report the pairwise comparisons for these tests in addition to planned comparisons I did following the ANOVA? TIA, E...
11. ### Permutation F test - what is the correct F statistic to use?

Hi all, I'm currently using an ANOVA to analyse some data sets, recently it occurred to me that the data may not be normally distributed - at all. So I decided to 'upgrade' to using a permutation F test which is apparently much more robust in the face of not-normally distributed data. The...
12. ### How to report Correspondence Analysis

Hi. I'm busy with a scientific research honours thesis, and for my results the statistician at my university conducted a correspondence analysis with a scatterplot, and then also a table. The problem is, I have no idea how to report this in my write-up. I have looked on the internet again, and...
13. ### Reporting Beta + unstandardized CIs?

Hello, I did a multiple regression analysis and for now always only reported the standardized effect sized (Beta). Since I heard that it would be good practice to also include the CIs, I wonder how this is done in practice - should I just present the standardized effect size next to the...
14. ### interpreting and commenting on Repeated-Measures ANOVA results

Hello, everybody, you've always been really helpful, so I've got a question to you, again :) I am dealing with an assignment, where we have to run repeated-measures ANOVA the assignment is as follows (I am an English Teacher, so the research is in Eng.Teach,field): A researcher wants to...
