In hypotheses testing, the $p$-value is the smallest significance level $\alpha$ at which the test rejects $H_0$ if $H_0$ is in fact true.

Is there a similar concept as is $p$-value also for the type-II error $\beta$?

  • $\begingroup$ Erasing previous comment, which does not seem to have been helpful. Suggest you review definitions of significance level, p-value, Type I and II errors, & rejection region. $\endgroup$ – BruceET Nov 10 '18 at 21:17
