Results of Assessing Baseline Demographics

Results of Assessing Baseline Demographics

Prof. Mary Ferrill illustrates the results of the baseline Demographics in this video.

Continuing from the previous video, we need to find the correct data types this time.

Mostly, clinical medicine analyses belong to interval/ratio data. However, you’ll see ordinal data as well as nominal occasionally.

Besides, please notice that there were two primary outcomes in this case.

An important tip is that, if the data is normally distributed, the median, mean and mode should all be the same number. In other words, this data is not normally distributed, so we should use something other than a parametric test to analyze it.

Finally, we have all three data types: interval/ratio, ordinal, and nominal, and we can use ordinal data on interval/ratio. Consequently, we can pick an ordinal test and an nominal one, so they could get away with just two statistical tests in this study.

If you have any questions or thoughts, please share them below.
