During the year 594 individuals in Youngtown died from CHD, whereas 661 individuals died from the same cause in Oldtown. What does this information tell you about the risk of dying from the same cause in Oldtown. What does this information tell you about the risk of dying from CHD in the two cities: is one safer than the other?

Cause Specific death rate due to CHD is

(594/200,000) x 100,000= 297 per 100,000 in Youngtown

And, (661/200,000) x 100,000= 335 per 100,000 in Oldtown.

However the difference of death between two towns is not significant in 100, 000 population. So, we can say that there is not enough evidence to say that Youngtown is safer than Oldtown. The differences of cause specific death rate between these two towns are not statistically significant.

9. Now do we have enough information to make a valid comparison between the two cities regarding CHD as a cause of death? What do we know that we didnâ€™t know before?
