This Monday, June 21st, a group spoke about the irresponsible use of Peruvian academic statistics and comments in the media and on social networks.
Similarly, they condemned the irresponsible and in some cases dubious use of statistical analysis presented in various media and social networks that suggest “electoral fraud”.
“For a valid, reliable, accurate and rigorous analysis of data, not only numerical aspects but also epistemological aspects (such as testing or eliminating hypotheses) and specific factors for the context (sociology, politics) need to be considered. It is important to remember that ideology and theory based on models are crucial, regardless of the workplace.
In addition, they urged the media to “report objectively, transparently and responsibly.”
“Last week, a key section shared preliminary analyzes, which did not adequately report the details of the methods implemented, showing peer evaluation and non-statistical quality methodology. This is even more serious, as these preliminary analyzes were used to indicate the presence of fraud in the selection process, contrary to the studies developed on this subject through rigorous methodology, ”she commented.
Of all the things that have been said in public, journalists point out, above all, those who present themselves as scientists or those who conduct scientific research on the results of the second round:
“In our opinion, after an objective evaluation of the methods, the only strong analysis presented to date is the analysis of Iposos Peru and professor-researcher Pablo Lavado from the Universidad del Pacifico.”
