Bonferroni correction, Advanced Statistics

Bonferroni correction: A procedure for guarding against the rise in the probability of a type I error when performing the multiple signi?cance tests. To maintain probability of a type I error at some specific selected value α, each of the m tests to be done is judged against the signi?cance level, α=m. For a small number of concurrent tests (up to ?ve) this method gives an easy and acceptable answer to the problem of multiple testing. It is though highly conservative and not recommended if the large numbers of tests are to be applied, when one of many other multiple comparison procedures available is usually preferable.
