Hey, so I'm doing spearman's rho and I've got all the numbers I need, the end result is not significant.
What I'm stuck on is if the result is NOT significant which hypothesis do I accept/reject?
Also while I'm on the topic could someone help me with the others so for the Wilcoxon, t test etc when to accept/reject which hypothesis. I've tried searching it up but not found anything.
Thanks

With a non-significant result, you accept the null. You did not find a difference/result, therefore your hypothesis that there would be no difference is the right one.

Yes, but it depends on what your p value is. Obviously if you get a non-significant result, you can't then turn around and say you found a difference!
