When the coefficient hits the clinic: Effect size and the size of the effect

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (2):211-211 (1998)
The usefulness of effect-size differs in utilitarian experiments from its use in theory corroborations. Chow introduces the question of the relationship of effect-size to practical validity and the role of the assessment of “importance” in this. This review develops this question and suggests the actuarial table as a replacement for effect-size in practical decision-making.
