Sample Size Explorers

Sample Size and Power Calculators

When planning experiments or studies, use the Sample Size Explorers to answer questions like these:

How many units should I test?

Will I be able to detect a difference in my treatment means?

How many samples are needed to construct an interval with a specified width?

How many units must I test to estimate failure time?

The Sample Size Explorers are a collection of interactive utilities that enable you to adjust study parameters and assumptions to explore different study designs. The tools are grouped by use:

Power for hypothesis testing.

Confidence intervals for interval estimation.

Reliability demonstrations.
