Chapter 16: Orthodox methods: historical background

  • p. 494, second full paragraph, last sentence: ``Feinberg'' should be ``Fienberg.''
  • p. 495, footnote 1: ``Gossett'' should be ``Gosset.''
  • p. 502, second line after eqn. (16.11): ``(median) $\pm$ (interquartile distance).'' Strictly speaking, this should be ``median and quartiles,'' as what is meant is the interval from the lower quartile to the upper quartile. The interval from (median) $-$ (interquartile distance) to (median) $+$ (interquartile distance) is twice as wide.
  • p. 503, line 1: ``criteria'' should be ``criterion.''
