Cases of patients who didn’t survive: Ignored by Research studies?
Research are plagued with studies ignoring cases that didn’t survive
Samples of population should include the cases that failed to survive, the failed projects, the patients who died taking the drug under testing and evaluation…
Otherwise, the study’s best resting place is the waste bin.
In survivorship bias you see only the survivors in any experiment, project or drug testing on patients.
In the intention-to-treat error, the failed projects show up in the wrong category that is not used to sample from.
For example, test subjects who didn’t “survive or failed” in the experiment tend to vanish from the sample.
