Compare two different groups that differ in size?

I would like to compare two different parental groups on the percentage of different employment rate. Since the groups are in differnt size, how can we deal with in programme evaluation? Thanks!

Usually, the size difference is not an issue. The concern is about the use of a nonparametric statistical test, such as the Kruskal-Wallis test to test the unemployment rate, which unlikely displays a normal distribution. Nevertheless, one reasoning logic of any is that the sample parental distribution resembles the population parental distribution. That is, when the unequal numbers of parental groups are realistic in the population, it is logical for the test.

In my evaluation project, I used a new scale that had never been tested among Hong Kong patients. Do I need to conduct a factor analysis before data analysis?

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
