0014. We can safely say the diuretic reduces blood pressure more than the placebo. The same holds true for the comparison between the beta-blocker and placebo. Now let us compare the two drugs, B vs. 049. 017 or less for significance adjusted for multiple comparisons. 97. Recently12, there has been some questioning of the routine adjustment for multiple comparisons on the grounds that we thereby may commit more type II errors and miss important effects. In any case p levels should be reported so that the informed reader may evaluate the evidence.

This statistical test is performed to compare the means of two groups under the assumption that both samples are random, independent and come from normally distributed populations with unknown but equal variances. Null Hypothesis: rnA = mB' or the equivalent: mKmB =0 Alternate Hypothesis: rnA '" mB or the equivalent: rnA - mB ",0 [NOTE: When the alternate hypothesis does not specify the direction of the difference (by stating for instance that rnA is greater than mB) but simply says the difference does not equal 0, it is called a two-tailed test.

The degrees of freedom to enter the t tables are 261 + 257 - 2 = 516. 0014. We can safely say the diuretic reduces blood pressure more than the placebo.
