When the found value is below we accept the null hypothesis of no change. - Based on example in class:  52.54 - 45.66 / square root of [(0.56)squared + (0.52)squared]  6.88 / square root of [0.584]  6.88 / 0.764  9.00 - Years of potential life lost (YPLL) is calculated for a specific cause of death and typically range from thousands to millions. We won’t actually be able to calculate this on the exam. - Equation: YPLL = total of [person’s age at death – predetermined age at death (which is 65 in the USA)] - Tay Sach’s = always leads to death by the age of 3 or 4, it’s a neurodegenerative disease, gene is passed on from parents. - Example in class: What disease has the highest YPLL, Tay Sach’s or breast cancer?
