 French term or phrase: p < 0.001 I'm doing a Fr>En translation on a weight-loss drug, and in it they refer to a 4-yr study of the drug, and the results as compared to a placebo. There's a graph for the people who took the drug, showing starting weight, then weight after four years and another graph showing the same thing for the people who took the placebo. Underneath that it says: 1 an : différence moyenne de 4,4 kg entre les 2 groupes p < 0.001. 4 ans : différence moyenne de 2,7 kg entre les 2 groupes p < 0.001. My question is: What does "p < 0.001" mean?
