Dear all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If one has a distribution f(x,mean,sigma), for example the normal distribution, is there a better alternative to the p-value?

I have heard many comments that claim the p-value is not to be taken too seriously.

Consider that I wish to calculate that probability that x could take a value x1, where x1 > mean, how do I do this more reliably? Is there a Bayesian method perhaps?

Cheers,

Natski
