In statistics, hypothesis testing is an extension of the scientific method. It serves to evaluate a specific problem, for example that a drug alleviates pain, or that a coin is not fair. In this procedure, the null hypothesis H0 is assumed to be true. Then some data are observed and from these data a conclusion is drawn (called an inference). A statistical hypothesis test tries to show that the inference cannot reasonably be due to random chance, but it can never prove that H 0 is true.Over the lifetime, 19.5k publication(s) have been published within this topic receiving 103.78k citation(s). The topic is also known as: statistical hypothesis testing & confirmatory data analysis.
