significance [ENGLISH]

Claim that a test result is unlikely to have occurred by chance, but is instead likely to be attributable to a specific cause, meaning the null hypothesis can be rejected. However, while an intervention might have a statistically significant effect, the effect might not be considered clinically significant.

signifikans [SWEDISH]
