About the course

Back to course listing

If you do not collect enough data then you may not be able to draw conclusions from your data. This course will explore sample size issues, starting with how to calculate the sample size required in order to obtain a desired accuracy for a confidence interval and progressing to issues of power and effect size, including use of the G*Power software. The course follows on from our “Questionnaire Design and Sample Selection” course but can be attended on its own.
