Around the Blogs, Vol. 89

Yeah, not a lot of original content lately; and given that it's the end of the year, readers should prepare for lots more listed-links-type of posts. Perhaps I'll get round to writing some original stuff over the holidays, but I doubt it. So, here's some noteworthy recent blog posts:

3. When outcomes for the treatment group affect outcomes for the control group, results won't scale up. (Economic Logician/Pieter Gautier, Paul Muller, Bas van der Klaauw, Michael Rosholm and Michael Svarer)

4. Perform your own meta-analysis (soon, perhaps) (passed along by Tyler Cowen)

5. A partial model of U.S. politics, from Andrew Hammel

Happy holidays, everyone.

Thanks for the great link to controlled experiment example in which treatment affects the control group. I deal with this in detail in "Uncontrolled", and term this problem "holistic integration." As a huge advocate of RCTS, this is one example among many of situations in which they don't apply.
