Diet Wars II

Description

In the study of different diets for losing weight (ex0623, ex1420 and ex1922), there appear to have been many more experimental subjects that dropped out from the low carbohydrate diet group than from the other two diet groups. This data set contains the numbers who did and didn't drop out in each diet group. Is there any evidence that the drop out rate differs in the three groups?
