Using the right statistical methodology is very important. Here we provide a statistics checklist to help researchers. This checklist is limited to quantitative empirical studies and it does not provide any guidelines for studies involving small-scale in-depth interviews, systematic reviews, or philosophical studies. Further, this checklist serves as an aid in the design and analysis of quantitative studies, not as a mandatory tool. The recommendations in this list are based on decades of broad experience in statistical consultancy and analysis, but can be discussed with a member of the Methodology & Statistics dept. in case of doubt (for details of whom to contact then, see https://stat.mumc.maastrichtuniversity.nl/consultancy). Note that statistical methods will not be evaluated in audits.
