    Lightbulb p-values - what is trend level?




    I am using an alpha of .05 as to indicate significance. My advisor considers values over .1 as trend-level p-values. I understand that we can establish any referent probability value as our alpha. Convention has dictated the use of 10%, 5%, and 1% as typical values for statistical significance.
    My question is, what are considered trend-level values for statistical significance? Is it .10 - .19 or is it .10 - .15? Or is the decision more arbitrary?

    Let me know what your experiences have been with establishing trend-level values.

    Hello
    excuse me i dont understand your intent
    but i say you , you should choose significance level before that start your project . and it is arbitrary, but .1,.05,.01 are current.

    Great question. In other words, what p-value can be reported as a trend?
    <.05 - significant
    <.1 - marginally significant.
    what is the threshold for a trend?
