A small pilot study is run to compare a new drug for chronic pain to one that is currently available. Participants are randomly assigned to receive either the new drug or the currently available drug and to report improvement in pain on a 5-point ordinal scale: 1 = Pain is much worse, 2 = Pain is slightly worse, 3 = No change, 4 = Pain improved slightly, 5 = Pain much improved. Is there a significant difference in self-reported improvement in pain? Use the Mann-Whitney U test with a 5% level of significance.

New Drug: 4 5 3 3 4 2

Standard Drug: 2 3 4 1 2 3

Step 1

Given data and calculation of Rank is shown below

Step 2

**Formulation of Hypothesis**

**Null Hypothesis : -** There is no difference in the self-reported improvement in pain

**Alternative Hypothesis : -** There is difference in the self-reported improvement in pain

Sum of Ranks of new drug

R1 = 10 + 12 + 6.5 + 6.5 + 10 + 3 = **48**

Sum of Ranks of standard Drug

R2 = 3 + 3 + ...
