    Statistical significance between placebo group and test group

    It’s an ongoing trial. I think I’m maybe missing the point though. Thanks for taking an interest.

    Statistical significance between placebo group and test group

    Hi. No. They are very similar. Some people are arguing that because 7 is more than 5 then the trial drug increases the number of deaths. I can see that’s not the case but wanted to assure myself that this had a scientific basis. Thanks for taking an interest.

    Statistical significance between placebo group and test group

    There were 2 randomised groups of 800. 5 deaths in the placebo group and 7 in the test group. Is that enough information?

    Statistical significance between placebo group and test group

    Hi. I need to work out whether or not the difference in number of deaths between a placebo group and a test group is statistically significant. I’d be grateful if someone was able to explain which test is best and how I should go about this. Thanks.
