Description

This function uses Fisher's test (implemented in fisher.method () function of the MADAM package) to ask whether the p values in the range 0.00 to 0.05 are more right skewed than you would expect (i.e. bunched up towards zero). This function replicates an analysis described in Simonsohn et al (2013, see references). If you use it, please cite that paper and the MADAM package (see references).

Usage

Arguments

p

a vector of p values between 0.0 and 0.05 (inclusive)

...

additional expressions passed to fisher.method() function from the MADAM package.

Value

This method returns a data frame containing the following columns:

S

The test statistic from Fisher's test

p

The p value from Fisher's test

num.p

The number of p values used to compute the test statistic

df

The number of degrees of freedom
