Model selection

Many models, same data

Introduction Let’s talk about model selection! As a non-statistician, I find the process of choosing an appropriate statistical model to be slightly intimidating, even agonizing at times. In the hopes of demystifying this process for other non-statisticians, this post attempts to walk you through how Gina Nichols and I decided on the appropriate models and stats for an upcoming manuscript. Constructive feedback is always welcome. Gina and I are using data from this project.
