Abstract

This chapter presents the reprinted article "The Earth is spherical (p < 0.05): Alternative methods of statistical inference" by Kim J. Vicente and Gerard L. Torenvliet. The chapter argues that "the statistical analysis techniques that are most familiar to, and most frequently used by, ergonomics scientists and practitioners have important limitations that could be overcome if we also relied on alternative methods of statistical inference." There is little to disagree with in the chapter's rebellious stature toward what it takes as entrenched statistical practice in the social and behavioral sciences, but there have been many improvements along the lines the chapter advocates in the years since this article in this chapter was originally published.
