Problem 67

In the 1970s, the U.S. Veterans Administration (Murphy, 1977) conducted an experiment comparing coronary artery bypass surgery with medical drug therapy as treatments for coronary artery disease. The experiment involved 596 patients, of whom 286 were randomly assigned to receive surgery, with the remaining 310 assigned to drug therapy. A total of 252 of those receiving surgery, and a total of 270 of those receiving drug therapy were still alive 3 years after treatment. Use these data to test the hypothesis that the survival probabilities are equal.
