### Power and Sample Size Analysis: Z test

October 17, 2012 |

This article provide a brief background about power and sample size analysis. Then, power and sample size analysis is computed for the Z test. Continue reading → [Read more...]

### Power Analysis and the Probability of Errors

September 22, 2012 |

Power analysis is a very useful tool to estimate the statistical power from a study. It effectively allows a researcher to determine the needed sample size in order to obtained the required statistical power. Clients often ask (and rightfully so) what the sample size should be for a proposed project. ... [Read more...]

### Demonstrating the Power of F Test with gWidgets

April 2, 2010 |

e know the real distribution of the F statistic in linear models — it is a non-central F distribution. Under H0, we have a central F distribution. Given 1 – α, we can compute the probability of (correctly) rejecting H0. I created a simple demo to illustrate how the power changes as other parameters ... [Read more...]

### R Tips in Stat 511

March 22, 2010 |

Here are some (trivial) R tips in the course Stat 511. I’ll update this post till the semester is over. Formatting R Code Reading code is pain, but the well-formatted code might alleviate the pain a little bit. The function tidy.source() in the animation package can help us format ... [Read more...]

### Design of Experiments – Power Calculations

November 18, 2009 |

Prior to conducting an experiment researchers will often undertake power calculations to determine the sample size required in their work to detect a meaningful scientific effect with sufficient power. In R there are functions to calculate either a minimum sample size for a specific power for a test or the ... [Read more...]
