Table 6 Univariate hypothesis testing results for beef intake of mothers during pregnancy

From: Altered metabolism of mothers of young children with Autism Spectrum Disorder: a case control study

Variable Test ASD-M (mean ± std) N = 28 TD-M (mean ± std) N = 29 p-Value FDR AUC Ratio (ASD-M/TD-M)
Beef Frequency MW 2.50 ± 1.43 2.24 ± 0.91 0.73 1.00 0.53 1.12
Beef Quantity MW 1.46 ± 0.58 1.41 ± 0.50 0.83 1.00 0.51 1.41
  1. The beef frequency and quantity measurements were not recorded for every ASD-M participant which is why N = 28 in this case. The beef frequency is defined as the number of times beef was eaten per week and the beef quantity is defined as the serving size (compared to a standard serving)
