  • Type of the study outcome: Key for selecting appropriate statistical methods Study outcome – Dependent variable or response variable – Focus on primary study outcome if there are more Type of the study outcome – Continuous – Categorical (dichotomous, polytomous, ordinal) – Numerical (Poisson) count – Even-free duration
  • Continuous outcome Parameters: – Mean (SD) – Median (Min:Max) – Correlation coefficient: r and ICC Modeling: – Linear regression The model coefficient = Mean difference – Quantile regression The model coefficient = Median difference Example: – Outcome = Weight, BP, score of ?, level of ?, etc. – RQ: Factors affecting birth weight
  • Categorical outcome Parameters: – Proportion or Risk Modeling: – Logistic regression The model coefficient = Odds ratio (OR) Example: – Outcome = Disease (y/n), Dead(y/n), cured(y/n), etc. – RQ: Factors affecting low birth weight
  • Numerical (Poisson) count outcome Parameters: – Incidence rate (e.g., rate per person time) Modeling: – Poisson regression The model coefficient = Incidence rate ratio (IRR) Example: – Outcome = Total number of falls Total time at risk of falling – RQ: Factors affecting tooth elderly fall
  • Event-free duration outcome Parameters: – Median survival time Modeling: – Cox regression The model coefficient = Hazard ratio (HR) Example: – Outcome = Overall survival, disease-free survival, progression-free survival, etc. – RQ: Factors affecting survival
  • The outcome determine statistics Continuous Mean Median Categorical Proportion (Prevalence Or Risk) Linear Reg. Count Survival Rate per “space” Median survival Risk of events at T(t) Logistic Reg. Poisson Reg. Cox Reg.

  • Dependency of the study outcome required special statistical methods to handle it Example of dependency or correlated data: – – – – Before-after or Pre-post design Measuring paired organs i.e., ears, eyes, arms, etc. Longitudinal data, repeated measurement Clustered data, many observation unit within a cluster Choices of approaches: – Ignore it => use ordinary analysis as independency not save – Simplify it => use summary measure then analyze the data as it is independent – not efficient – Handle it => Mixed model, multilevel modeling, GEE recommended

  • Always report the magnitude of effect and its confidence interval Absolute effects: – Mean, Mean difference – Proportion or prevalence, Rate or risk, Rate or Risk difference – Median survival time Relative effects: – Relative risk, Rate ratio, Hazard ratio – Odds ratio Other magnitude of effects: – – – – Correlation coefficient (r), Intra-class correlation (ICC) Kappa Diagnostic performance Etc.

  • Facts about Variation Because of variability, repeated samples will NOT obtain the same statistic such as mean or proportion: – Statistics varies from study to study because of the role of chance – Hard to believe that the statistic is the parameter – Thus we need statistical inference to estimate the parameter based on the statistics obtained from a study Data varied widely = heterogeneous data Heterogeneous data requires large sample size to achieve a conclusive finding

  • Report and interpret p-value appropriately Example of over reliance on p-value: – Real results: n=5900; ORDrug A vs Drug B = 1.02 (P<0.001) – Inappropriate: Quote p-value as < 0.05 or put * or **** (star) to indicate significant results – Wrong: Drug A is highly significantly better than Drug B (P<0.001) – What if 95%CI: 1.001 to 1.300? – This is no clinical meaningful at all….!
  • Report and interpret p-value appropriately Example of over reliance on p-value: – Real results: n=30; ORDrug A vs Drug B = 9.2 (P=0.715) – Inappropriate: Quote p-value as > 0.05 – Wrong: There is no statistical significant difference of the treatment effect (P<0.05). Thus Drug A is as effective as Drug B – What if 95%CI: 0.99 to 28.97? – This is study indicated a low power, NOT suggested an equivalence…! – Correct: There was no sufficient information to concluded that . . . => inconclusive findings
  • P-value is the magnitude of chance NOT magnitude of effect P-value < 0.05 = Significant findings Small chance of being wrong in rejecting the null hypothesis If in fact there is no [effect], it is unlikely to get the [effect] = [magnitude of effect] or more extreme Significance DOES NOT MEAN importance Any extra-large studies can give a very small Pvalue even if the [magnitude of effect] is very small
  • P-value is the magnitude of chance NOT magnitude of effect P-value > 0.05 = Non-significant findings High chance of being wrong in rejecting the null hypothesis If in fact there is no [effect], the [effect] = [magnitude of effect] or more extreme can be occurred chance. Non-significance DOES NOT MEAN no difference, equal, or no association Any small studies can give a very large P-value even if the [magnitude of effect] is very large
  • P-value vs. 95%CI (1) An example of a study with dichotomous outcome A study compared cure rate between Drug A and Drug B Setting: Drug A = Alternative treatment Drug B = Conventional treatment Results: Drug A: n1 = 50, Pa = 80% Drug B: n2 = 50, Pb = 50% Pa-Pb = 30% (95%CI: 26% to 34%; P=0.001)
  • P-value vs. 95%CI (2) Pa > Pb Pb > Pa Pa-Pb = 30% (95%CI: 26% to 34%; P< 0.05)
  • P-value vs. 95%CI (3) Adapted from: Armitage, P. and Berry, G. Statistical methods in medical research. 3rd edition. Blackwell Scientific Publications, Oxford. 1994. page 99
  • Tips #6 (b) P-value vs. 95%CI (4) Adapted from: Armitage, P. and Berry, G. Statistical methods in medical research. 3rd edition. Blackwell Scientific Publications, Oxford. 1994. page 99 There were statistically significant different between the two groups.
  • Tips #6 (b) P-value vs. 95%CI (5) Adapted from: Armitage, P. and Berry, G. Statistical methods in medical research. 3rd edition. Blackwell Scientific Publications, Oxford. 1994. page 99 There were no statistically significant different between the two groups.
  • P-value vs. 95%CI (4) Save tips: – Always report 95%CI with p-value, NOT report solely p-value – Always interpret based on the lower or upper limit of the confidence interval, p-value can be an optional – Never interpret p-value > 0.05 as an indication of no difference or no association, only the CI can provide this message.
