    What statistical test do i use - mann whitney??

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    "In a study, a sample of physical and developmental problems was randomly divided into two groups: treatment group and control group. The question of interest is whether the average change of PDI score from 6 to 24 months was different for children in the intervention programme to those in the control programme. The observations do not follow a normal distribution"

    3. The attempt at a solution
