Application of biostatistics in research by teaching faculty and final-year postgraduate students in colleges of modern medicine: A cross-sectional study
http://www.ijabmr.org/article.asp?issn=2229-516X;year=2012;volume=2;issue=1;spage=11;epage=16;aulast=GoreMost researchers are interested mainly in deriving the P value, without having a clear understanding of its meaning. In this study also, only 9 (2.9%) respondents could give the correct meaning of 'P value.' One of the most common errors made by the researchers who do not consult a statistician is that, when conducting a study similar to a previous published study, they tend to use the same methods of statistical analysis and the same tests that were used in the previous study. This reveals an indifference on the part of the researchers towards statistics and also research as a whole.Thank you very much.
