**Example text**

Two groups with sample proportions p1 and p2 have a sample relative risk of p1 /p2 . 82. The sample proportion of MI cases was 82% higher for the group taking placebo. 008 makes it seem as if the two groups differ by a trivial amount. By contrast, the relative risk shows that the difference may have important public health implications. Using the difference of proportions alone to compare two groups can be misleading when the proportions are both close to zero. The sampling distribution of the sample relative risk is highly skewed unless the sample sizes are quite large.

Of 893 respondents to this question in 2002, 400 replied “yes” and 493 replied “no”. 448. 0167. 002. 50, that is, that fewer than half of Americans favored legal abortion in this situation. In some other situations, such as when the mother’s health was endangered, an overwhelming majority favored legalized abortion. Responses depended strongly on the question wording. 50) is plausible. We learn more by constructing a conﬁdence interval to determine the range of plausible values. Let SE denote the estimated standard error of p.

011. 011. The actual probability of type I error is much smaller than the intended one. This illustrates an awkward aspect of signiﬁcance testing when the test statistic has a discrete distribution. For test statistics having a continuous distribution, the P -value has a uniform null distribution over the interval [0, 1]. That is, when H0 is true, the P -value is equally likely to fall anywhere between 0 and 1. 50. 50. 010, . . 001. 2. 59 In this average sense, P -values for discrete distributions tend to be too large.
