DOES MODEL FIT HAVE A VALIDITY PROBLEM?

Although the use of measures of model fit is ubiquitous, it is not necessarily obvious that these indexes mean what we want them to mean. Knowing what inferences and uses can be supported for a particular set of numbers is the realm of validity and in this talk I will argue that we have not done nearly enough validation work on our model fit measures.

The keynote is free, open to the public and requires no registration.

WHERE DOES PHILOSOPHY FIT IN STATISTICS?

We will briefly review key topics in philosophy, but with a heavier focus on philosophy of science and related topics. Following this, we will discuss how statistics is taught, ranging from introductions to advanced methods, and discuss if, where, and how philosophy and statistics should intersect.
