# Which is the null hypothesis?

## Which is the null hypothesis?

A null hypothesis is the assumption about the population that is to be tested in a hypothesis test. The null hypothesis chosen is often not the assumption that is actually of interest, the so-called working hypothesis, but the assumption that one would like to refute.

## What is h0 and h1?

The hypothesis is denoted by H0, null hypothesis. The opposite of this, ie the “counter hypothesis”, is referred to as H1, alternative hypothesis. So in the real (unknown) world either H0 or H1 is true in any case.

## Can the P value be 0?

The p-value then corresponds to the lowest level of significance at which the null hypothesis can just be rejected. Since the p-value is a probability, it can have values ​​from zero to one.

## What does a significance of 0 mean?

Most commonly, a value of 0.05 or 0.01 is set as the significance level for statistical tests. At a significance level of 0.05, there is a 5% risk of incorrectly concluding that there is a difference between the null hypothesis and the study results.

## When is chi2 significant?

If the value of the test statistic is higher than the critical value, the difference is significant. This is the case for the example (6.22> 3.84). It can therefore be assumed that the two distributions differ significantly (chi-square (1, n = 248) = 6.22, p

## What does significant mean in medicine?

Definition. Significant means “significant” or “essential”. In a narrower sense, it is used in medical statistics for characteristics that meet the criteria of significance.

## How many significant digits?

All numbers that are not leading or trailing zeros are said to be significant, unless the trailing zero is a decimal (for example, 3.00 has 3 significant digits, whereas 300 has only one significant digit).
