5 thoughts on “Female hurricanes reloaded – another reanalysis of Jung et al.

    • Thanks for the links. Brought me to Andrew’s post at http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/monkey-cage/wp/2014/06/05/hurricanes-vs-himmicanes/ which I found worth reading, especially the comments by the anonymous “colleague who is interested in risk perception”.

      I read the post by Jeremy Freese but I’m afraid that I find a lot of his criticism derived. For example, I don’t see what’s the problem with the effect being mediated by an interaction. Seems perfectly possible to me that carelessness only becomes deadly for larger storms. I think they should have better tested their models (see above), but if I have done this and I find a significant and strong interaction, why wouldn’t I report it?
