When investigating relationships of interest empirically, researchers typically must make many decisions (e.g., about sampling frames, variable measurements, model specifications, and analytical approaches). These decisions amount to researcher degrees of freedom that may affect both the resulting estimates of a relationship and the respective inferences drawn. In this webcast, we will discuss multiverse analysis as a tool that can help estimate, illustrate, and investigate the impact of researcher degrees of freedom on estimated relationships. Webinar attendees will gain insight into (1) the overall idea of multiverse analysis, (2) how to run it, and (3) the value the tool offers for judging the robustness and reliability of estimates of interest.
