The Unscientific Incompleteness and Bias of Unidirectional Projections (= Regressions): A Questionnaire
AbstractWhy do statisticians (econometricians, economists, financial analysts, etc.) continue to incompletely identify the algebraic/geometric structure of the multi-variate data series they profess to analyze, and instead continue to publish the results of incomplete, prejudiced and biased unidirectional projections (= 'regressions') of such covariance structures? Such incomplete, prejudiced and biased representations cannot lead to scientific knowledge, as has been demonstrated already more than twenty years ago.
