A few years ago, in a post about Baysian statistics, you referred to a book that I wrote about a study on catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation: The Chorus of AblationistsI am writing a story on the transplant industry and am wondering about a widely cited article concerning the long term health effects of donating a kidney.I am told that the original data set is suspect – which is another story – but I’m wondering about the methods used in this study:The stakes are pretty high, as this article is being used to expand the donor pool.I was hoping that you or one of your blogging comrades could take a quick look at the statistical analysis section.
I have no time at all to look at this, but it seems like it could be important. If anyone does have the chance to take a look, please give us your thoughts in the comments. Thanks.
