About the Workshop

Sample size estimation is one of the key activities undertaken while designing any research study. An adequate estimate (not less and not more) of sample size is important for ethical, scientific and logistic reasons. This workshop will introduce the statistical concept behind sample size estimation and go on to have practical exercises for sample size calculation of various commonly encountered study designs and outcome variables.

Appropriate sampling techniques are essential to avoid selection bias, facilitate inference to a wider population and improve generalizability of study findings. In this workshop various sampling techniques including randomization methods for experimental designs will be covered with discussions on the advantages and disadvantages of each method.

At the end of the workshop the participants will be able to decide the sample size calculation method given the study design, appreciate the effect of assumptions on sample size calculation and choose the appropriate sampling technique.
