Problem 10CQQ

Statistical Significance and Practical Significance True or false: If data lead to a conclusion with statistical significance, then the results also have practical significance.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Step1:

If data lead to a conclusion with statistical significance, then the results also have practical significance.

This is false. Statistical significance is based on the probability that we would see results given that we imposed no treatment whereas practical significance is based on how values between the treatments themselves differ. Something can be statistically significant and with very little difference between the treatments when the sample size is very large. This is a case when there is statistical significance but not practical significance.
