Exactly. And that's why the way these statistics might be presented can be misleading.

This was one of the things I was wanting to bring out but it's been a long time for someone to twig to it & express it.

When talking on the forum about comparative losses, it is more honest to use the raw data. IE, total hives against total hives. Rather than means between groups etc. Not everybody understands that.

So. Is the difference still insignificant?
