about this item

Castañeda-Méndez identifies 30 statistical statements that are widely taught in textbooks and courses that are not true in some cases and for some, never true. He explores the conditions that render false the seeming universality of the statements in order to help readers develop their own sense of when a statement is and is not true. Among the myths are two types of data: attribute/discrete and measurement/continuous, only sigma can compare different processes and metrics, a sample size of 30 is acceptable for statistical significance, control charts are not tests of hypotheses, and a process must be stable to be predictable.
