An informal and multidisciplinary group of psychology researchers who are interested in statistics
PsychStats is an informal and multidisciplinary group of psychology researchers (broadly interpreted) who are interested in statistics. Areas of research represented include education, emotion, intelligence, linguistics, personality, reasoning. Members have experience with a range of methods requiring overlapping knowledge (e.g., ANOVA, multiple regression, multilevel/mixed effects modelling, factor analysis, structural equation modelling), using a range of different software packages (e.g., SPSS, R, MPlus, SAS, Mx).
I have yet to see any problem, however complicated, which, when you looked at it the right way, did not become still more complicated.
If you would like to be added to the list, please email Tom Booth. This is a low-volume list on which people discuss statistics, and on which PsychStatsBanter gatherings (see below) are organised and advertised.
Statistical Computing @ UCLA - Sample data sets and analyses using R, SAS, and SPSS plus many other resources.
Quick-R - Straightforward examples of doing almost anything you want in R.
We meet on an occasional basis, usually in S38, Psychology Building, 7 George Square, with meetings lasting around an hour. Each meeting is focussed on issues in statistics that people find particularly troubling, socially and morally.
