Suppose you want to test the effectiveness of a certain drug for treating a disease—that is, you want to see if using the drug is better the standard treatment. You select 150 patients to give the drug, and 150 patients to give the standard treatment. Name at least five factors you should control for in your samples to make the test more random.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I agree. maybe since the drug is for treating a disease, how bad the disease is affecting each person should be controlled? @MrProphecyXII
