Power calculations and sample size determination are essential parts of planning a scientific study. In this one-day course we will introduce the basic principles of precision-based and power-based sample size calculations. Using practical examples, we will demonstrate how to perform sample size calculations for common designs in single-sample studies and for comparing groups, as well as discussing related issues such as multiple comparisons. A variety of useful software for power calculations will be highlighted.
This course will cover topics including:
Introduction and motivation
Basic principles of power and sample size calculations
Comparing groups: Common study designs
Complex power calculations
