Ho - Cases and controls are prescribed the same numbers of medication alpha =.05
I've got some data like those above and I wish to compare if the cases took significantly more drugs than the controls. These tables are two separate, but related data. When I ran a t test the respective t-stats were like 49 and 39. Should I be using a different test here?
