Application to the test of hypothesis: Notice that, one may utilize Confidence Interval (CI) for the test of hypothesis purposes. Suppose you wish to test the following general test of hypothesis:
H0: The population parameter is almost equal to a given claimed value,
against the alternative:
Ha: The population parameter is not even close to the claimed value.
The process of carrying the above test of hypothesis at a level of significance using CI is as follow:
- Ignore the claimed value in the null hypothesis, for time being.
- Construct a 100(1- a)% confidence interval based on the available data.
- If the constructed CI does not contain the claimed value, then there is enough evidence to reject the null hypothesis. Otherwise, there is no reason to reject the null hypothesis.
