Ben Goldacre and big data

Post by Pucksoppet » Thu Mar 05, 2020 1:25 pm

An interesting blog posting from Tim Harford telling about one thing Ben Goldacre, who is familiar to many members here, has been doing

The Statistics behind the Spread of Ideas

The Tim Harford's blog kindly links to the underlying paper, which is Open Access:

Variation in responsiveness to warranted behaviour change among NHS clinicians: novel implementation of change detection methods in longitudinal prescribing data BMJ 2019; 367 doi: https://doi.org/10.1136/bmj.l5205 (Published 02 October 2019)
