    should I include a table with non significant results of Z proportion tests




    I am writing a manuscript and have a table with ONLY non significant Z proportion test results. I am wondering whether to omit this table although it demonstrates the descriptive data nicely, regardelss of the P value. thanks for the help!

    I would never omit such data but present them including the Z- and non-significant p-values. The critical p-value of 0.05 distingusihing between "significant" and "non signficant" is rather arbitrary and should not be seen too strict, you should more think about this value as a continuum: The smaller it is, the more likely your data are not an artefact.
