samplesize {CVcalibration} | R Documentation |
Compute the sample size needed for a calibration study assuming that the coefficients of the variation of measurements are constants.
samplesize(x0, d0, x=seq(20, 200, length=1000), CVx, CVy)
x0 |
The x-value you plan to calibrate with the estimated calibration equation |
d0 |
The required length of the 95% confidence interval of the calibrated x-value based on the estimated calibration equation. The narrow confidence interval require a large sample size. |
x |
The empirical observations of the target distribution from which $x$-values will be drawn in the planned study. |
CVx |
The underlying coefficient of variation of measurement $x$ |
CVy |
The underlying coefficient of variation of measurement $y$ |
size |
The sample size needed for estimating the calibration equation based on (1) CVx only; (2) CVy only; (3) both CVx and CVy; and (4) the ratio of CVy^2/CVx^2. |
