Re: “Urine Trouble: Drug Testing Welfare Recipients Fails in N.C., Just Like Everywhere Else

Only a few have actually read the article and understand the application of statistics here. Only 150 of the 7600 were asked to pee in a cup. Of those 150, 70 didn't show up, leaving only 80 who took the test. Of those 80, 21 people tested positive, which equates to just at 25%. Essentially 1 in every 4 people who tested, tested positive for drugs. Those sampling results can be applied to the whole to give a general idea as to what we can expect. Using those numbers, it is likely that right around 1900 of the 7600 people would give a positive result of tested. While we would need to know more about the actual benefit amounts to determine the actual impact, I feel comfortable in concluding that the program is serving it's purpose if it keeps taxpayer money out of the pockets of drug abusers.
