In particular, it recommends that the statistician who is performing the interim analysis should not be involved in the conduct of the trial, especially in modification of the original trial design. Several early stopping rules exist to address the issue of multiplicity. The simplest method is the Bonferroni correction, where the overall level of significance, α is divided by the number of times the analysis is performed, for example, n time, to provide a lower threshold, that is, αi = α/n.

5 Common Mistakes The following are some of the common mistakes made in designing an observational study that should be avoided or considered when interpreting results from such studies: • Selection bias by picking subjects through non-randomised selection techniques For instance, in a case–control study looking at the associated risk factors for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients, 10 Essentials of a Successful Biostatistical Collaboration investigators may be tempted to select those attending a public health education programme out of convenience.
