In 2003, a review of the use of statistics in Infection and Immunity (IAI) found that more than half of articles had errors of statistical analysis or reporting of statistical results. This updated review of recent articles identifies and discusses the most common statistical methods reported in IAI and provides examples of both good reporting and common mistakes. Furthermore, it expands on the criteria for statistical analysis and reporting presented in the IAI "Instructions to Authors," with the goal of helping both readers and authors better understand and apply the criteria.
