The probability that observed or greater differences occur by chance.
the stated probability at which a hypothesis is either accepted or rejected. In most cases, differences are accepted only if they occur at the 95% level or higher. This is interpreted to mean that, by accepting the statistical difference, we are observing an actual population difference in 95 out of 100 cases. In the other 5 cases, the observed difference is actually attributable to random error.
