In Sect.  9.1 we discussed procedures designed for making statistical inference about the difference in the probabilities of a common event A for two populations. Those procedures are based on independent random samples of Bernoulli variables (i. e., either the event A occurs or it does not) from each of the two populations. One way to represent the observed outcomes of such Bernoulli random samples is in the following 2 × 2 table:
