COVID-19 Research and p-Values

In the introduction to this new column, we asked potential authors to consider the questions “What ignites your passion, feeds your frustration, or impresses you with its beauty or power?” We described the vision of this column as the opportunity “to introduce topics (‘the one thing’) that both spark curiosity and have the potential to affect daily life.” We envisioned the primary audience for this column as individuals not trained in statistics, but for whom occasionally that one thing will be as important or timely as it will be for both statisticians and non-statisticians.

In this spirit, this issue’s column explores COVID-19 research and p-values. Although more technical than will usually be the case for future columns, this topic did ignite the author’s passion. We think it will do the same for you.
