Finding Sample Size with Predetermined Margin of Error and Level of Confidence for a Proportion

Finding Sample Size with Predetermined Margin of Error and Level of Confidence for a Proportion

Author: Al Greene
Description:

• Demonstrate how to use the margin of error formula (z*• S ) to calculate sample size when given a predetermined margin of error and level of confidence for a one-proportion z-interval
• Review standard error for proportions.

This packet shows you the method to find the minimum required sample size when you are already given a margin of error and confidence level. We show you several examples of calculating sample sizes, and review what the standard error for proportions is.
