Calculation Procedures for Sample Size Determination for Planned Studies, and Their Program Implementation

Abstract (resume)

Methods of sample size calculation in tasks, connected with analysis of dichotomous feature occurrence in population, are studied. The software developed by the authors is presented, which allows automation of the tasks under consideration.


sample size calculation, qualitative features, analysis of frequencies.
