Power Calculation Explanation

Solve For
The unknown you are interested in solving for.
The sample size used to test the hypothesis.
The \(\alpha\) (Type I error rate) level of the hypothesis test.
The power (1 - Type II error rate) of the hypothesis test.
Number of Levels
The number of levels of the endpoint being studied. This number is the dimension of the contingency table.
Contingency Table
The table representing pre and post treatment counts for each level. If you prefer, you can enter the raw probabilities here and you will get the same result, as long as the sum of the table is 1.
