Abstract

Researchers in the field of medical and allied sciences (MAS) are generally mathematically faint at heart. The evolution from a student to a researcher is abrupt. Even though statistical methods are taught to an MAS student at the postgraduate level in most Indian universities, practical application of the same is mostly lacking. Once these students are thrown into the realm of research, they fail to apply even the basic methods in analytical statistics. A researcher works hard and honestly to collect good data but may report the wrong findings because an incorrect statistical test was used for data analysis. With this study, we intend to present a simpler way of answering the common question, “Which statistical hypothesis test should I apply?”
