SirDigbyChickenCaesar: 2.3 million affected and they asked 206 people.


So you're saying the data is shaky?

FLMountainMan: LOL at the notion that is somehow a uniquely American problem.  Sick people are a drain.  It's a moral necessity (in my opinion) to care for them, but it is exhausting.  Some people aren't cut out for it.  I think you would find this cuts across all cultures.


America does have the tendency to treat healthcare workers like complete shiat, making it so that even the people who are cut out for it are overworked, underpaid, and miserable. And that's when they're actually paid, and not a family member forced to act because our social services are complete shiat.
Like most things in America, it doesn't have to be this way, but the shareholders wouldn't make as much money if people were treated like human beings.

A true judgment of a 'modern' society is how those workers are paid.

Same goes for teachers.

As long as the sampling was random, then n>30 can return a testable distribution against the h0 that less than half have experienced abuse.
