Philosophy of Science 71 (5):1007-1025 (2004)
|Abstract||The growing availability of computer power and statistical software has greatly increased the ease with which practitioners apply statistical methods, but this has not been accompanied by attention to checking the assumptions on which these methods are based. At the same time, disagreements about inferences based on statistical research frequently revolve around whether the assumptions are actually met in the studies available, e.g., in psychology, ecology, biology, risk assessment. Philosophical scrutiny can help disentangle `practical' problems of model validation, and conversely, a methodology of statistical model validation can shed light on a number of issues of interest to philosophers of science.|
