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. Prior knowledge of basic statistics such as mean, variance, standard deviation and confidence intervals is required. Those who have attended our “Getting Started with Stats” course will have covered these topics but all those who have equivalent knowledge are welcome.
See our full range of courses (including our “Pick & Mix” selection) at http://go.herts.ac.uk/sscu or contact the course organiser, Dr Neil Spencer, on 01707 285529, firstname.lastname@example.org.
