P Value

P-value: the closer to zero the stronger your correlation is.

  • probability of your data showing something that isn't there
  • the smaller the p-value (closer to zero), the more likely that your data is showing a real pattern
  • usually, if the p-value is less than or equal to .05, we support our hypothesis; we accept our data, because there is a 95% chance that the pattern in our data is real)
