F-value

If the road is not yet clear to you,we will show you the way how to get through.

The F-value and the F-distribution

Four distributions are very commonly used in statistics: the normal distribution, the t distribution, the chi-squared distribution and the F distribution. Depending on the test, a z, a t, a chi-square or an F is calculated.

The calculated F-value is compared with the critical F-value of the F-distribution. If the calculated value exceeds the critical value, the result is called statistically significant.

The critical F values can be found in tables. Because the F-test has two degrees of freedom, one for the numerator and one for the denominator, these tables are fairly extensive. The critical F-values can be found in any good statistical textbook or can be downloaded from our site.

Mission

My goal is to teach you how to conduct good research.

Because:

Good research provides you with better information.
With better information, you can make better decisions.
With better decisions, you can create a healthier, wealthier and freer world,
for people, fauna and flora, for current and future generations.

That is why I think it is important that  you know how to do your research well.
