005, the results of study 1 are considered „statistically significant‟ and the results of study 2 „statistically non-significant‟ in addition, in the example shown in the illustration the confidence intervals for both study 1 and. Do not accept the null hypothesis when you do not reject it so how should the non-significant result be interpreted the experimenter should report that there is no credible evidence mr bond can tell whether a martini was shaken or stirred, but that there is no proof that he cannot. In any research as important is to detect significant differences in a particular comparison, as it is the finding of no statistically significant results, and therefore should be discussed for example, a non-significant difference can be practical and useful its application to society.
Often a non-significant finding increases one's confidence that the null hypothesis is false consider the following hypothetical example a researcher develops a treatment for anxiety that he or she believes is better than the traditional treatment.
When doing statistical analysis on a study, many researchers discover that they have a non-significant result, which means that the researcher cannot rule out the possibility that the results are due to chance instead of the independent variable this result means that the researcher cannot make inferences about the results of the study. We investigated the problem of interpretive bias in a sample of recently published trials with findings that did not support the study hypothesis why interpretive bias occurs a non-significant difference between two groups in a randomised controlled trial may have several explanations.

Results should not be reported as statistically significant or statistically non-significant (see epoc worksheets for preparing a summary of findings using the results of study 1 are considered „statistically significant‟ and the results of study 2 „statistically non-significant. Since the purpose of research is to make generalizations about the real world, some people see a non-significant result as a failure of the study it's true that you can't make generalizations based on a non-significant result but remember that it also means that you can't make generalizations about the opposite of the hypothesis, either.
