Caption Contest - November 2017 - Results


The November caption contest featured a cartoon showing an electricity failure at night after a storm near the "Institute of Clinical Statistics."

The winning caption for the November contest was "We were unable to reach significance due to insufficient power," written by John Dawson from Texas Tech University. John’s caption provided a nice avenue for facilitating discussions of power in significance testing.

An honorable mention also goes to "Clinical Statisticians Are Terrified of Lurking Variables In the Dark," written by Joy Xiong, a student at Strath Haven High School. Another honorable mention goes to “This is not what was meant when we said the results would be more shocking if the study was blinded,” written by Matt Rissler from Loras College.
