    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.
