appendixes BREXIT

Sorry for delay – got a lot on. However I’m happy I’m on the right lines here with explaining WHY an individual voted REMAIN/LEAVE/STAY HOME based on the 5 Best-Worst Scaling questions. 99% prediction rate – perfect prediction of the “stay homes”. Looking good! Not yet sure how/if I will link to Party Membership and/or […]

Panel and platform thanks

This is just a “shout out” for the panel I used to access respondents – pureprofile – and the platform I used to host the survey – ConfirmIT. I used them virtually all the time when “learning the trade” in Sydney and their UK affiliates did me proud in the current EU study. This study […]

The vote changes – a tiny bit – LEAVE goes down from 51.8% to 51.0%. However, there is a GENUINE […]

highly efficient designs are not the bees knees

Statistical efficiency v cognitive efficiency  I was reminded yesterday of a study I am part of. In fact, I am/was effectively chief investigator (A) on it, since I was given full control over the design of “that half” of the study sample. Thus, for the purposes of this post, I refer to that half over […]
