Getting ready for another semester, thinking about how to communicate to students about statistical philosophy while they are trying to learn about the tool box. The mind wanders, and I was curious about the prevalence of Akaike Information Criterion (AIC) versus Bayesian Information Criterion (BIC) in the literature.
Here’s an NGRAM from Google’s Ngram Viewer:
But of course, both AIC and BIC are dwarfed by the NHST p-value approach…
… and a Google Scholar search on just “p-value” practically broke the search engine at more than 4 million hits.
Now that THAT’S solved, back to semester planning.
