# Man Whitney watch

1. im havin difficulty analysing my data for my coursework... a p value of .03 is fairly significant is that right? and what does a score on man whitney of 977.5 mean?

When doing inferential stats what type of data is best to use in the results section?... like range standard deviation etc or none?

A p-value of 0.03 is significant at the 5% level. It's not incredibly significant, but it's still respectable. Your man whitney score is what gives you your p-value and thus associated probability.

Your inferential statistics section includes the further analysis (i.e. your mann whitney). Generally, your results are split up into descriptives first (averages and spread) then inferentials.
