Sample Size Calculator
Sample size calculator is a statistical tool for calculating the size of the sample in a population. This calculation is difficult if the sample size is very high. Sample size determination is an essential one in the case of a statistical survey. Using the below formula we can calculate the size of a sample. It is given by,

n = $Z^{2}$$\frac{p(1-p)}{C^{2}}$

Where n is the size of the sample
          Z is the confidence level, usually it is taken as 1.96
          p is the proportion factor
          C is the margin of error

Steps for Sample Size Calculator

Step 1 :  

Identify the values of Z, p and C from the question.

Step 2 :  

Substitute the values in the given equation and simplify accordingly.

n = $Z^{2}$$\frac{p(1-p)}{C^{2}}$

  1. The values of Z,p and C are given as 1.96, 0.1 and 0.03 respectively. Find the size of the sample of the population?

    Step 1 :  

    The given parameters are

    Z=1.96, p=0.1 and C=0.03

    Step 2 :  

    n=1.962 $\times$ $\frac{0.1(1-0.1)}{0.03^{2}}$

    n=3.8416$\times$ $\frac{0.1\times 0.9}{0.0009}$


    Answer  :  


  2. Determine the sample size when Z=1.96, p=0.3, c=0.04?

    Step 1 :  

    The given values are

    Z=1.96, p=0.3, c=0.04

    Step 2 :  

    n=1.962$\times$ $\frac{0.3(1-0.3)}{0.04^{2}}$

    n=3.8416$\times$ $\frac{0.3\times 0.7}{0.0016}$

    n = $\frac{0.806736}{0.0016}$ = 504.21≈504
