Two Sample Means Calculator

Use the Two Sample Means calculator to evaluate sample size for a hypothesis test about two means. Explore questions such as how large a treatment effect is detectable for a given sample size, significance level, desired power, and assumed variability in the data. Sample size and power are associated with the following hypothesis test:

Equation shown here

versus the two-sided alternative:

Equation shown here

where μ1 and μ2 are the true means of the two populations. It is assumed that the populations of interest are normally distributed and that you want to detect a difference of δ between the means.
