There is a UW question that explains NNT and ARR

Example: If we compare drug X with drug Y in the long term reduction of diabetic nephropathy ....

If 10% patients using drug X had diabetic nephropathy

And 20% of patients using drug Y had diabetic nephropathy ...

Then Drug X has a ARR = 0.2-0.1 = 0.1

NNT = 1/ARR = 10
