# Calculating p-values

In order to determine whether to choose the null hypothesis or the alternative hypothesis, you need to calculate a p-value from the z-score.

Let's return to the late shipments dataset and the proportion of late shipments.

The null hypothesis, \(H_{0}\), is that the proportion of late shipments is six percent.

The alternative hypothesis, \(H_{A}\), is that the proportion of late shipments is **greater than** six percent.

The observed sample statistic, `late_prop_samp`

, the null hypothesis statistic, `late_prop_hyp`

(6%), and the bootstrap standard error, `std_error`

are available.
