How could differences between countries affect the elements that are included in statistical research?
How could studies with such a diverse sample from different countries be managed to create a more dependable reference for statistical studies?
How do differences of the quality of care that the target population receives impact studies?

As statisticians, we need to be able to understand the validity of the outcomes of statistical analysis for different target populations. 

In this podcast, you will learn ways to tackle this problem:

  1. Finding a common ground among the countries involved and using it to establish the foundation of the study.
  2. Using the common ground as a basis for the variables that are to be used for sample measurement and analysis.
  3. Improving how data is balanced between differences to create a singular and focused outcome.
  4. Considering removing countries that do not fit within the common ground variable in a multi-country study.

We expect, that the lessons presented in this episode will help statisticians pay more serious attention to the differences in their base sample source to improve the analysis.

Listen to this episode now to see how this information could personally and professionally help your journey in statistics.

I want to help the community of statisticians, data scientists, programmers and other quantitative scientists to be more influential, innovative, and effective. I believe that as a community we can help our research, our regulatory and payer systems, and ultimately physicians and patients take better decisions based on better evidence.

I work to achieve a future in which everyone can access the right evidence in the right format at the right time to make sound decisions.

When my kids are sick, I want to have good evidence to discuss with the physician about the different therapy choices.

When my mother is sick, I want her to understand the evidence and being able to understand it.

When I get sick, I want to find evidence that I can trust and that helps me to have meaningful discussions with my healthcare professionals.

I want to live in a world, where the media reports correctly about medical evidence and in which society distinguishes between fake evidence and real evidence.

Let’s work together to achieve this.
