This section is too long. Consider splitting it into new pages, adding subheadingsor condensing it. September The choice of null hypothesis H0 and consideration of directionality see " one-tailed test " is critical.
Tailedness of the null-hypothesis test[ edit ] Consider the question of whether a tossed coin is fair i. A possible result of the experiment that we consider here is 5 heads. Let outcomes be considered unlikely with respect to an assumed distribution if their probability is lower than a significance threshold of 0.
A potential null hypothesis implying a one-tail test is "this coin is not biased toward heads". Beware that, in this context, the word "tail" takes two meanings: Therefore, the observations are not likely enough for the null hypothesis to Hypothesis identification article analysis paper, and the test refutes it.
Since the coin is ostensibly neither fair nor biased toward tails, the conclusion of the experiment is that the coin is biased towards heads. Alternatively, a null hypothesis implying a two-tailed test is "this coin is fair".
This one null hypothesis could be examined by looking out for either too many tails or too many heads in the experiments. The outcomes that would tend to refuse this null hypothesis are those with a large number of heads or a large number of tails, and our experiment with 5 heads would seem to belong to this class.
However, the probability of 5 tosses of the same kind, irrespective of whether these are head or tails, is twice as much as that of the 5-head occurrence singly considered. Hence, under this two-tailed null hypothesis, the observation receives a probability value of 0.
Hence again, with the same significance threshold used for the one-tailed test 0. Therefore, the two-tailed null hypothesis will be preserved in this case, not supporting the conclusion reached with the single-tailed null hypothesis, that the coin is biased towards heads.
This example illustrates that the conclusion reached from a statistical test may depend on the precise formulation of the null and alternative hypotheses.
Discussion[ edit ] Fisher said, "the null hypothesis must be exact, that is free of vagueness and ambiguity, because it must supply the basis of the 'problem of distribution,' of which the test of significance is the solution", implying a more restrictive domain for H0.
In classical science, it is most typically the statement that there is no effect of a particular treatment; in observations, it is typically that there is no difference between the value of a particular measured variable and that of a prediction.
To overcome any possible ambiguity in reporting the result of the test of a null hypothesis, it is best to indicate whether the test was two-sided and, if one-sided, to include the direction of the effect being tested. The statistical theory required to deal with the simple cases of directionality dealt with here, and more complicated ones, makes use of the concept of an unbiased test.
The directionality of hypotheses is not always obvious. The explicit null hypothesis of Fisher's Lady tasting tea example was that the Lady had no such ability, which led to a symmetric probability distribution.
The one-tailed nature of the test resulted from the one-tailed alternate hypothesis a term not used by Fisher. The null hypothesis became implicitly one-tailed. The logical negation of the Lady's one-tailed claim was also one-tailed.
Pure arguments over the use of one-tailed tests are complicated by the variety of tests. Some probability distributions are asymmetric. The traditional tests of 3 or more groups are two-tailed.
Advice concerning the use of one-tailed hypotheses has been inconsistent and accepted practice varies among fields.
A non-significant result can sometimes be converted to a significant result by the use of a one-tailed hypothesis as the fair coin test, at the whim of the analyst. The flip side of the argument: One-sided tests are less likely to ignore a real effect. One-tailed tests can suppress the publication of data that differs in sign from predictions.
Objectivity was a goal of the developers of statistical tests. It is a common practice to use a one-tailed hypotheses by default.There is a growing concern in traffic accident rate in recent years. Using Mashhad city (Iran second populous city) traffic accident records as case study, this paper applied the combination of geo-information technology and spatial-statistical analysis to bring out .
