Read About Type I Error Type Ii Error In Detail.


In the testing of statistical hypothesis, a type I error is equivalent to the false rejection of a true null hypothesis, while a type II error is falsely retaining an incorrect null hypothesis. Simply, a type I fault is the detection of an item which is not present, whereas a type II error is the inability to detect a result which is present.

An example of the type I error includes a test which declares a patient is having a disease when in fact, he does not have the disease.

An example of type II error includes a blood test which fails to detect the disease that it was designed to detect.
