We have now reached the maniacal laughter point of the evening. That point at which, when doing data analysis, I realize that I HAVE NO RESULTS! How funny is that? I’ve analyzed the data 15 different ways (14 of which were fine) and then remembered to include a big confounder and, as it turns out, only the confounder matters!
Kinda makes me happy I didn’t give up my Saturday trying to figure this out, instead opting to read Deathly Hallows cover to cover.
Now I just have to figure out how to talk about nonsignificant results in a way that will earn me 50% of my class grade. HA! Hee! Ho!
Soon the men will be here with my new white jacket to take me to the lovely padded room. Data analysis can do that to a person.
