I understand the two errors is a bit confusing. These two errors are based on whether you have rejected the null hypothesis or not. Type I error refers to your rejecting the null hypothesis when it is correct, and hence it is an error. And Type II error refers to your not having rejected the null hypothesis when it is wrong.

If I were to create a graph showcasing caregiving hours for parents in Hong Kong, would it be appropriate to use the caregiving hours on the X-axis and frequency on the Y-axis?

Building on the previous post, can you provide any insight on whether a bar graph would be an appropriate method to represent the educational attainment of parents?

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
