    Compare change in test/control population means

    Thanks for the reply. In regards to within-pair correlation my understanding is that would be a factor if I was comparing the the treatment group to itself, using a before and after measuement? I am comparing a control group which is independent of the treatment group. I don't feel confident...

    I would like to do a retrospective observational study on some data. There was some functionality added to customer software and the question is does the added funtionality increase positive member outcomes? I have been building out my datasets with the idea of comparing the treatment group...

    Thanks for the help! What measurement or calculation are you using to determine participants in X have a 41% lower rate of Y=1 than subjects not in X? I would like to understand the measurement a little better. At this point it seems we are getting unexpected results no matter how we measure...

    Help interpreting results of categorical variable analysis

    I am trying to understand if a subject participates in the X program (X=1) what is the impact on Y. The hope is X will lead to a increase in Y (Y=1).

    Help interpreting results of categorical variable analysis

    Hello, I would like to confirm my analysis for two categorical variables, X and Y. Where both X and Y are binary (0,1). Given a null hypothesis that X and Y are independent I get the following results from my data: Observed results: X0, Y0 = 1,300,243 X0, Y1 = 1,140,705 X1, Y0 = 188 X1, Y1 =...
