  • Type I error or alpha error is what drug companies tend to commit. Drug does not work but they report it works. That is to reject the null hypothesis when in fact it is true. For example a companies null hypothesis was that paroxetine does not work for children and adolescents and they rejected it. Later on it was found that it does more harm than good. So they had wrongly commited the type 1 or alpha error.
