Two-tailed Test

Definition

Health Economics

  • A statistical significance test based on the assumption that the data are distributed on either side of a central value. For example, testing whether one treatment is better than another would be a one-tailed test, being concerned only with the better outcomes. Testing whether it was better or worse would be a two-tailed test.
