Statistics and Data Analysis Part 22 – Statistical Tests: 1
The Power of a Test Procedure Power = The probability it will correctly reject a false hypothesis. A type II error occurs when you fail to reject a false hypothesis. β = probability of a type II error. (Standard notation in statistics – yes, it does conflict with the standard notation for regression coefficients.) Power = 1 – β Power depends on what the true value is (remember, the null is false, so something else is true). 35/42
