I was directed by my son (math person, statistician, and professional data manager)to  a post in a forum where data/stats people discuss methods. It asks for information about outcome data comparing different statistical models. It might be interesting for this group to follow this. Or perhaps contribute. I have not seen any answers yet. Here is the flavor of the question:

"The overarching goal of statistics is to make decisions in the face of uncertainty.” …list of statistical approaches…  "What seems to be missing is head-to-head comparisons of approaches to see which ones optimize utility/loss/cost functions where such functions reflect real, concrete goals.” …  "Does anyone know of comparative studies that inform us of the value of two or more statistical approaches when the goal is making the best decisions?"
