Discussion: Statistical Skewing

P-hacking is a new way people can manipulate data to show correlations between variables—variables that actually have no correlation whatsoever.

P-hacking is a way to tell the truth in a mathematical sense by finding correlations. In your initial discussion post, answer the following question:

  • Do you think p-hacking is ethical?
    • How can the media and/or society respond to this issue in an informed way?
    • How might it impact our daily lives?
    • How should this new information impact you as a researcher (in your line of work or in your degree)?
