  • (written as Significance)
    Statistical significance is defined under those headwords. Other forms of significance include clinical and policy significance. A result may be statistically significant but, for example, too small or rare to be of major clinical or policy significance. In general, statistical significance probably ought to be regarded as a necessary precondition for results to have either of the other kinds of significance.
