1, where the axis is the true mean response, and the treatment gets better as we move to the right and worse if we move to the left. At the boundary, we have T = S – δ. The null hypothesis is to the left of this boundary inclusively, and the alternative hypothesis is to the right of the boundary. ” Simon (2001) suggests that the NI margin δ must be no greater than the efficacy of S relative to P and will, in general, be a fraction of this quantity. 2 Proposed δ How do you choose δ? This is a big question in testing for NI.
