    the critical region) would cause us to reject the null-hypothesis in favor of the alternative hypothesis. The area of the rejection region is known as the level of significance and represents type I error (alpha) corresponding to the probability that a true null-hypothesis is rejected (as opposed to type II error- beta; the probability of accepting a false null-hypothesis). Essentially, hypothesis testing calls for comparing a test statistic to the critical value of the test statistic. If this test

    Statistics is well-defined as a division of mathematics and is most often used to explain, analyze, and summarize as well as interpret what we perceive- in order to make sense or meaning of our interpretations. Every day we encounter statistics that originate from various forms and behaviors. Which means that to in order for all of the information gathered to make sense, there would realistically be no need for the use of statistics. Conversely, due to its focus and pragmatic on applications, statistics

    Conceptual Framework The theoretical framework guiding this study conceptualizes policy analysis as a multidisciplinary inquiry aimed at the creation, critical assessment and communication of policy-relevant information. Policy analysis is a problem-solving discipline. To solve practical problems, the analysis draws on social science methods and theories (Dunn, 2012). The methodology of policy analysis is a process of “reasoned inquiry aimed at finding solutions to practical problems” (Dunn, 2012
