Why Most Published Research Findings Are False

Why Most Published Research Findings Are False

John P. A. Ioannidis

Summary

There is increasing concern that most current published research findings are false. The probability that a research claim is true may depend on study power and bias, the number of other studies on the same question, and, importantly, the ratio of true to no relationships among the relationships probed in each scientific field.

If you're clinically depressed, press 1 despairingly, but it won't help.
Nothing will.

If your manic, press 2 while jumping up and down and shouting.
