Re: The survival time of chocolates on hospital wards: covert observational study

There is one unanswered question. Are any of the subgroups eating more than their fair share of the chocolates? For example, if physicians are only 10% of the hospital staff and they are eating 15% of the chocolate, then they are obviously eating more than their fair share of the chocolates.
