I am trying different methods to correct a p-value from simulated data,namely the following "holm", "hochberg", "hommel", "bonferroni","BH", "BY" in the p.adjust command of R and then consrtuct the following confusion matrix enter image description here

The problem is that in the first four methods i get V=0,only "BH" and "BY" methods give V>0.Is this expected?

  • $\begingroup$ They are different methods; why would you expect them to always give the same results? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Does this answer your question? FPR (false positive rate) vs FDR (false discovery rate) Your first 4 methods control for the probability of making any false-positive finding; the "BH" and "BY" methods control for the proportion of positive findings expected to be false (false discovery rate). $\endgroup$
