|Title: ||MISINFORMATION IN MIS RESEARCH: THE PROBLEM OF STATISTICAL POWER|
|Authors: ||Baroudi, Jack J.|

|Issue Date: ||Jun-1986 |
|Publisher: ||Stern School of Business, New York University|
|Series/Report no.: ||IS-86-062|
|Abstract: ||This study reviews 57 MIS articles employing statistical inference
testing published in leading MIS journals over the last five years. The
statistical power of the articles was evaluated and found on average to
fall substantially below the accepted norms. The consequence of low
power is that it can lead to misinterpretation of data and results.
Collectively these misinterpretations result in a body of MIS research
that is built on potentially erroneous conclusions.|
