Flu vaccinations and a hypothesis

Question Description

If there are a 1000 participants of taking flu vaccinations with 500 taking shots and 500 taking nasal sprays to prevent the flu. What is the hypothesis?

Final Answer

You can have several different ones, depending on what you think the outcome will be!

- if you think shots are more effective:

Participants who are given the flu vaccine will have less flu cases than the participants who are given the nasal spray.

-if you think the nasal spray is more effective:

Participants who are given the nasal spray will have less flu cases than the participants who are given the nasal spray.

if you think both are equally effective:

you actually can't do this one- as you don't have a "control" meaning participants who received neither the nasal spray nor the shot, for all we know, vaccinated people also didn't catch the flu!

If you think both are equally ineffective:

Participants who were given the flu vaccine and the participants who were given the nasal spray will still catch the flu.
