Informative Hypotheses


Welcome on the informative hypotheses website.

Informative Hypotheses are hypotheses constructed using (in)equality constraints among the parameters of interest. A simple example is three ordered means, Hi: μ1 > μ2 > μ3. Often informative hypotheses paint a more realistic picture of the state of affairs in a population expected by a researcher than the traditional null and alternative hypotheses.
