Blind experiment


Double blind studies are the gold standard in medicine. I contend they should be triple blind. The statistician analyzing the data should be given anonymized, whitened, normalized data from the experiment and know nothing else about it. The experimenters can then see if the model takes their variable of interest into account. This particularly applies to epidemiological studies.
