Hi Roger - Thanks for your response - it certainly does help. Al -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Roger Newson Sent: Wednesday, March 17, 2010 3:29 PM To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: Re: st: strange -multproc- results The paper to consult on these methods is Newson (2003), which gives a survey of all the wierd and wonderful assumptions, formulas, and features of all these procedures. The Simes procedure is less conservative than most, but the Krieger procedure is usually even less conservative, because it estimates the prior probability that a null hypothesis is true. For this to be feasible, the Krieger procedure assumes that the P-values are independent, so consistent estimation can be done. The Storey procedure is probably even less conservative than the Krieger, and is even more complicated. I hope this helps. Best wishes Roger References Newson R.

The two liu's and yekutieli were about the same (4 rejections, critical P-value about 0.002. But the simes and krieger were completely different (simes: 14 rejections, critical p-vlaue = 0.026) and (krieger: 15 rejections, critical p-value = 0.051). The latter two look too good to be true, especially the Krieger, where the critical p-value is actually higher than the specified FDR rate. > > Anyone know what's going on here?
