The New Statistics Part 1: Rationale, Effect Sizes and Confidence Intervals
Dr. Geoff Cumming
I retired in 2008 after 33 years in the School of Psychological Science, La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia. Before that I took a doctorate in experimental psychology at Oxford. I retired to write a book,
The New Stats, to be accompanied by my ESCI software. My passion is trying to persuade psychologists to improve how they do statistics. My research includes statistical cognition—the study of how people understand, or misunderstand statistical ideas. I am married to Lindsay; we have three grown up children scattered around the world, and one grandson. I enjoy giving talks about statistics, mountain biking, woodwork, and word games.
