Description of Guest Editorial

The articles in the September–October 2014 issue of the Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness (JVIB) present readers with a useful array of information, but they also employ many different statistical approaches and tests. The level of sophistication in the statistical analyses being reported in JVIB has been increasing over the last few years. However, lay readers are generally not equipped to adequately determine whether a given statistical approach or test is a good choice, whether it was employed correctly, or what the resulting symbols and numbers mean. The range of tests described in this issue demonstrate that the professionals in the field of visual impairment need to be at least minimally aware of a broad range of analysis techniques. The journal hopes to increase the level of comfort with statistics for all readers by resurrecting the Statistical Sidebar feature, so that results sections will be more approachable. Occasionally, when an article in the journal will be used to demonstrate a common (or uncommon) method of statistical analysis, the article will include a Statistical Sidebar.
