On deck this week

Mon: My namesake doesn’t seem to understand the principles of decision analysis

Tues: Middle-aged white death trends update: It’s all about women in the south

Wed: My talk Fri 1pm at the University of Chicago

Thurs: If you’re using Stata and you want to do Bayes, you should be using StataStan

Fri: One quick tip for building trust in missing-data imputations?

Sat: This graph is so ugly—and you’ll never guess where it appeared

Sun: 2 new reasons not to trust published p-values: You won’t believe what this rogue economist has to say.

P.S. If you just can’t wait till Tues to learn about the death trends, the paper is here.

And if you just can’t wait till Thurs to learn about why StataStan is the way to go for Bayes in Stata, that paper is here.

Both are already up on Arxiv so interested readers may have already encountered them.

It’s funny to think that I know what’s up all the way through April (modulo topical insertions), but you don’t!

    Andrew, maybe sometime you can blog about your productivity / time-management secrets. I have trouble paying my electric bill on time.

    • Andrew says:


      We use auto bill-pay. I gave the electric company a bank account number and they just take the payment automatically every month.

      • Bill Jefferys says:


        We’ve done this for a long time with our repeating bills. Electric, cable, telephone and cellphone, propane deliveries, credit cards (pay in full, never pay interest or penalties), telephone, all that stuff. Some gets charged to a credit card that then gets paid off at the appropriate time, some gets charged directly to the bank (depends on the establishment). No check writing, no fuss or muss or bother. I can’t recommend this more highly.

    There are some dangers – recall that there were worse ones that this
