Stats Visualisation

While looking up Cohen’s d, an effect size for significance testing, often used by psychologist, I came across a website that does a great job in visualising standard statistics:

My personal favourites are Interpreting confidence intervals, as it visualises the dynamic nature of sampling over time and Understanding Statistical Power and Significance Testing because of this quote:

“What’s wrong with [null hypothesis significance testing]? Well, among many other things, it does not tell us what we want to know, and we so much want to know what we want to know that, out of desperation, we nevertheless believe that it does!”

– Cohen (1994)
