@MaartenvSmeden @ambilinski @drjgauthier @f2harrell I would prefer speaking of the CI as a range of effect sizes most COMPATIBLE with the data according to their P-values, under the model used to compute the interval. "Possible" effect sizes is an overstatement, I'm afraid. https://t.co/VNayXZikC9 https://t.co/OzjOpR0sK5

@MaartenvSmeden @EpiEllie Mostly it's been tweets (many by @Lester_Domes). I don't know his published work well enough to say what is best to read, but this paper was interesting: https://t.co/VcZkAQ5z80 ... the framing of data science as embodying his critiques of mainstream statistics is my own spin.
