Does sharpness affect the chance of inflicting status?

as im finishing up unite im using this lance called Darkness (506 raw power, 250 para attrib, purple sharpness) against some monsters (mainly plesioth) and i just wanted to know because i've always been curious of this ,does the sharpness of a weapon affect the chance of inflicting abnormal statuses (para, poison, sleep,) or does the sharpness not matter when it comes down to statuses.
thanks!!

Those 2 links will help. The second one goes in extreme depth. But for short, no. It only affects raw, bouncing, and element. Just if you have further questions or the formula, use the 2 links above.

Sharpness doesn't affect status ailments. It only affects raw damage and elemental damage. Well, and KO damage for impact weapons like Hammers and Hunting Horns (*EDIT: Sharpeness only affects KO in 3rd generation games [thanks WarrenRalfson!])
