Power Program

This program computes sample size or power for user specified null hypothesis and alternative hypothesis parameter values for a variety of experimental designs.

Select one of the experimental designs:

  1. Comparative Clinical Trial with Loss to Follow-up and a Period of Continued Observation [ref: Rubinstein, Gail, & Santner]
  2. Long-term Medical Trial with Time-Dependent Dropout and Event Rates [ref: Wu, Fisher, & Demets]
  3. Clinical Trial with Strata-Specific Event Rates and Unequal Group Allocation [ref: Bernstein, Lagakos]
  4. Power Computations for Designing Comparative Poisson Trials with Unequal Group Sizes [ref: Brown & Green]
  5. Unstratified Cohort Studies with a Dichotomous Disease Outcome [ref: Schlesselman]
  6. Case-Control Studies with a Dichotomous Exposure Outcome
