An evaluation of the replicability of analyses using synthetic health data

Scientific Reports

DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.patter.2024.100946

The study considered two different types of generative models and also looked at the impact of data amplification.

Some interesting observations include that: when analyzed properly, data amplification has marginal value for improving the replicability of statistical analyses, replicability is maximized when ten synthetic datasets are generated and the resultant models are combined (as one does with multiple imputation), and that replicability does vary quite a bit with the type of generative model.
