nContMoe | R Documentation |
Compute a simple random sample size using a margin of error specified as the half-width of a normal approximation confidence interval or the half-width relative to the population mean.
nContMoe(moe.sw, e, alpha=0.05, CVpop=NULL, S2=NULL, ybarU=NULL, N=Inf)
moe.sw |
switch for setting desired margin of error (1 = CI half-width on the mean;
2 = CI half-width on the mean divided by |
e |
desired margin of error; either |
alpha |
1 - (confidence level) |
CVpop |
unit (population) coefficient of variation |
S2 |
population variance of the target variable |
ybarU |
population mean of target variable |
N |
number of units in finite population |
If moe.sw
=1, then S2
must be provided. If moe.sw
=2, then either (i) CVpop
or (ii) S2
and ybarU
must be provided.
