A biologist's guide to statistical thinking and analysis * however, can be misleading because of the presence of outliers, and it tends to be larger for larger sample sizes even without unusual data values. Standard deviation the larger the sample size requirement. Assessing this is a . It would seem logical that, because the t test assumes Normality, one should test for Normality first. The problem is that the test for Normality is dependent on the sample size. With a small sample a non-significant result does not mean that the data come from a Normal distribution. On the other hand, with a large sample, a significant result.

Ordinary least squares regression methods fall short because the time to event is typically not normally distributed, and the model cannot handle censoring, very common in survival data, without modification.
