Reporting on public opinion polls[edit]

There's a debate at Talk:Debate_on_the_monarchy_in_Canada#Polling on whether reporting the questions and results of public opinion polls is a violation of the pollster's copyright and whether media sources on polling results can be considered reliable sources. Please share your knowledge/opinions. AnonAnnu (talk) 06:07, 7 June 2015 (UTC)

Quasi-maximum likelihood[edit]

Quasi-maximum likelihood was the most visited (by some measure) economics related article in June 2015 hist, archiving 40,000 hits per day. However, the article could do with improvement. For example what is the Quasi-maximum likelihood used for? Jonpatterns (talk) 09:24, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

BESSEL CORRECTION[edit]

I HAVE BEEN INFORMED THAT THE EXACT FORMULA FOR BESSEL CORRECTION BASED ON SAMPLING WITHOUT REPLACEMENT HAS AN ADDITIONAL FACTOR OF N/(N-1). E(S2)= N(n-1)var(x)/((N-1)n) AND VARIANCE OF SAMPLE MEANS=(N-n)var(x)/(N-1)n. I AM JUST CONCERNED THAT YOU DON'T MENTION IT EXPLICITLY IN THIS ARTICLE. INSTEAD, ONE CAN IMPLICITLY DEDUCE IT FROM THE ARTICLE ABOUT VARIANCE, BECAUSE IT IS DUE TO THE COVARIANCE TERMS. ISN'T THIS THE REASON WHY THE CORRECTION IS BIASED FOR STANDARD DEVIATION? IN ANY CASE, HOW DOES ONE DERIVE THESE EXPRESSIONS FROM FIRST PRINCIPLES BECAUSE I HAVE PROVED THEM BY MERE INDUCTION?

Fixes to the logistic regression article[edit]

I have been working on logistic regression which was tagged as being unclear. I'd like comments on whether it is now clear enough. Thanks. (I've only been editing on Wikipedia for a few days, so I am not sure of how to do things). PeterLFlomPhD (talk) 12:50, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

New articles Suggestion[edit]

I noticed that there are only 2 articles in the new articles list. Can this be right? Also, I added an article The MAGIC criteria -- PeterLFlomPhD (talk) 21:14, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
