For this Discussion, review your readings from this week. Then addressing the following:

  • Identify
    the role of p-values and confidence intervals within epidemiologic
    research and provide examples of how these are used to interpret
    research findings.
  • Discuss
    the effect sample size has on p-values and confidence intervals and how
    this affects interpretation of statistical results.
