Moo_Phunk Love seeing a Stata graph on .net!!

That being said I agree with the users who say this theory does not offer a whole lot of explanatory power in terms of show ratings. If we want to get economics-y with our analysis of Phish shows then we have to take it all the way. The R-squared here is probably about 0.6. Plus any power analysis where we only have 9 observations would not merit much causal interpretation. With all the data we collect as phish fans, a much more robust analysis could likely be performed on this theory. Idk if there is anything specific about Dicks that would make us want to focus ONLY on the stats for those shows. We could test the hypothesis regarding idle days on a broader cohort to try to estimate this more precisely!
