Considering the ASA “Ethical Guidelines for Statistical Practice” present an example of a violation of these standards from the public record or your experience. What happened? How was it a violation? How was (or could it be) remedied? Conversely, if you have a specific example of a statistical practice that illustrates one of these principles, let’s hear about that. Hint: Scientists publishing research using statistical data and methods must report a conflict of interest (e.g. you are investigating smoking but are funded by the American Tobacco Institute).
