The question being answered is whether Hill’s study outcomes are dependent on the treatments, being whether streptomycin is effective as a tb treatment. In Hill’s Experiment 14 of the 52 subjects who did not take streptomycin died, while 4 of the 55 of those who did take streptomycin died. The analysis techniques I used, were summary tables which allowed me to see the proportion of those who survived and those who did not for the group of subjects who did and did not streptomycin. I also used a simulator to randomly create 100 different simulations of Hill’s experiment to see if the results of chance were aligned with his experiment results. I concluded from my 100 random simulations that streptomycin was an effective treatment. This can be helpful to those have contract TB.

Unformatted text preview: 1. In Hill’s Experiment 14 of the 52 subjects who did not take streptomycin died, while 4 of the 55 of those who did take streptomycin died. It does seem like treatment and outcome are dependent because 7 percent of those who took streptomycin died, while 26 percent of those who did not take streptomycin died. 2. 16.8 percent.

Yes because, it is an experiment, which allows us to conclude causation....
