Sig - disambiguation

Sig - disambiguation

'Sig', as a word contraction for 'statistical significance', has two main uses. On the one hand, as a p-value (p) (also referred to as an "exact level of significance"). On the other hand, as the level of significance chosen by a researcher using Fisher's approach to tests of significance (often contracted as "p" or "α"). As such uses create confusion, recommendations for sorting out such confusion are also given.
