I was doing research n I noticed a giant opportunity that
has. when I search to find statistically meaningful results a
search on r=+.9 will preferably create a list of items with a
correlation. To be able to do that is like the Froogle or
Products of science research.
To be able to search valid
results has big value. Right now both Yahooo n Google
automatically modify a "=+.0" to "0" "even if I try things
Those \ are character escapes.
If Yahoo makes that feature function then Yahoo will be
to say: You can search the literature on Yahoo to find
that matters That is a big credibility effect to compete with
You will also build up the rate of effective technological
change when researchers are able to find valid results
The funny thing is that the search is doable with perl or
even MS Word Perhaps the Idea might be:
service use perl on our giant Yahoo DB
search: cure MS r=.5
"r = +0.900"
128 results [reensure, Aug 11 2005]
"r > +0.050"
312 Results on Google Scholar [reensure, Aug 11 2005]
||Just a suggestion, try increasing the number of significant digits <link>
You have a good idea, but you might want to finish your research quicker just now.
||What are you correlating?
||the "" doesn't act literal at google or yahoo "r = +0.5"
Results 1 - 10 of about 19,000 for "r = +0.5"
numerous R 0.5 things that are non research
||I'm viewing the world database of happiness http://
www1.eur.nl/fsw/happiness/ where there are numerous

||I was going to do a drive-by fishboning for the lack of capitals in the title. Then I tried to read this. Then I tried to understand this. Now my head hurts.
||Just search for "statistically meaningful". And learn to write. [-]
||I really wanted to believe there was more to this.
||well, there's big piles of published findings that google n
yahoo don't parse Itd be much nicer if they did. What do
you think of a yahoo premium version where you do perl
||[Treon], There are many studies that are significant below r=0.9. In fact, a correlation of .9 or above would be in the minority in some fields of study, and would just as easily suggest collinearity (a bad thing in a multiple regression). It's probably just as important to search on p-values less than .05.
