Ethics in Statistical Science

This page addresses problems of data analysis and interpretation, in statistical science. To some degree, these span most areas of scientific inquiry where data are gathered. Brad Efron recently said, "statistics is the science of learning from experience". In that process of learning from experience, we may filter information using traditional statistical summaries, judgement calls, and our own biases.

Some attention is given to ethical issues in -omic analysis, which may have implications for policy or ethics both in the early stages of planning studies as well as downstream.
