Abstract

There is something thrilling about pressing enter on your computer keyboard and waiting that quarter-second to see whether the regression command you entered into the STATA software has produced the three coveted asterisks. The three coveted asterisks which signify whether your results are statistically significant – or in other words, meaningful. These three asterisks mean that whatever idea you had in your mind about how the world “works” could actually be supported with data. How did I come to the point to find this statistical exercise so thrilling?
