5 myths about measurement error
Health researchers are often confronted with data to analyze that contain measurement error due to, for instance, mistaken data entries, inaccurate recordings, or procedural errors. It is well known that measurement error can have a strong negative impact on the validity of health research studies when measurement error is ignored or misjudged. In this talk, I’ll present five common measurement error myths that contribute to misjudgments about the impact of measurement error on study results and solutions to mitigate measurement error bias.
