Table 1 Baseline characteristics by treatment group and overall

From: Pilot randomised controlled trial of culturally adapted cognitive behavior therapy for psychosis (CaCBTp) in Pakistan

Baseline characteristics Treatment group Total (N = 36)
CBT (N = 18) TAU (N = 18)
Age – mean (SD) 34.1 (9.55) 30.5 (8.15) 32.3 (8.94)
Number of years education – mean (SD) 8.9 (4.86) 7.8 (4.40) 8.4 (4.60)
Gender
 Male 14 (77.8%) 10 (55.6%) 24 (66.7%)
 Female 4 (22.2%) 8 (44.4%) 12 (33.3%)
Marital status

 Divorced 1 (5.6%) 0 (0.0%) 1 (2.8%)
Employment

 Unemployed 12 (66.7%) 8 (44.4%) 20 (55.6%)
 House wife 0 (0.0%) 2 (11.1%) 2 (5.6%)
Total number of prior inpatient psychiatric hospitalisations
 None 11 (61.1%) 9 (50.0%) 20 (55.6%)
 Once 0 (0.0%) 2 (11.1%) 2 (5.6%)
 Twice 3 (16.7%) 2 (11.1%) 5 (13.9%)
 Thrice 3 (16.7%) 4 (22.2%) 7 (19.4%)
 4 or more 1 (5.6%) 1 (5.6%) 2 (5.6%)
  1. For continuous baseline characteristics (age and number of years of education) an independent t-test was used to test for differences between treatment groups. For categorical baseline characteristics (gender, marital status and employment), the Fisher’s exact test was used to test for differences between treatment groups. For the total number of prior inpatient psychiatric hospitalisations, since this data was ordinal then the Wilcoxon-Mann Whitney U test was used to test for differences between treatment groups
  2. Baseline characteristics appear to be fairly balanced across the two treatment groups with no statistically significant differences between CBT and TAU treatment groups
