The p Value is Not One Number to Rule Them All

I have just seen an article that is too good not to be shared. It is published by Scientific American and discusses issues with the statistical significance and its effect on scientific results. It also lays out the alternative statistical methods that need to be taken into account. It is written in an a readable manner and has lots of links for the curious ones. I recommend it to everyone in data and analytics-related fields as well as everyone else interested in application of scientific methods. Find the article here: Statistical significance and its part in science downfalls. Enjoy!
