Abstract

A hypothesis is a statement or claim about the state of nature. Scientific investigators, market researchers, governmental decision makers, among others, will often have hypotheses about the particular facet of nature, hypotheses that need verification or rejection, for one purpose or another. Statisticians concerned with testing hypotheses using unbalanced data on the basis of linear models have talked about the difficulties involved for many years but, probably because the problems are not easily resolved, there is yet no satisfactory solution to these problems
