P-Hacking: A Talk and Further Thoughts

A week ago I gave a talk to Marcus Munafo’s group at the University of Bristol on the subject of P-hacking.

The presentation is now available online. If you don’t have time to watch the whole thing, I’d recommend the section from 14:50 to 22:00 – that’s my live demonstration of how, with a few minutes of P-hacking, you can find a nicely significant correlation ( p = 0.006 ) between two variables that have no relationship whatsoever.
