There are (n =)621 pairs of patients matched with respect to age, sex, and Independent negative binomial sampling (inverse sampling) 31 clinical condition. We obtain n10 = 16 (the number of pairs in which the patient receiving chemotherapy survives, but the patient receiving surgery dies), and n01 = 5 (the number of pairs in which the patient receiving surgery survives, but the patient receiving chemotherapy dies). 33), respectively. Because all these confidence intervals exclude 0, using any of these interval estimators indicates significant evidence at the 5% level that chemotherapy is preferable to surgery with respect to vital status at 5-year follow-up.
