Re: [IP] Statistical significance of kids with diabetes

small samples in statistics mean very llittle, especially when dealing
with large populations.  The larger the sample taken, the more reliable
the information.  Variation within sample populations can be very high,
yet not be enough to be called "significantly different".

Depending on situations, statistics can be "bent" to show what you want,
i.e. "Figures never lie, but liars figure."
