A wait list control group is often thought to be preferable to a no-treatment control group in cases where it would be unethical to deny participants access to treatment.

The wait list control group serves as a benchmark, allowing researchers to compare the experimental group to the wait list control group to see what sort of impact changes to Author: Nancy Schimelpfening.
