Calculates a simple random sample size based on a specified margin of error.

1 |

`moe.sw` |
switch for setting desired margin of error (1 = CI half-width on the proportion;
2 = CI half-width on a proportion divided by |

`e` |
desired margin of error; either |

`alpha` |
1 - (confidence level) |

`pU` |
population proportion |

`N` |
number of units in finite population |

The margin of error can be set as the half-width of a normal approximation
confidence interval, *e=z_{1-α/2}√{V(p_s)}*, or as the half-width
of a normal approximation confidence interval divided by the population proportion,
*e=z_{1-α/2}CV(p_s)*. The type of margin of error is selected by the
parameter `moe.sw`

where `moe.sw=1`

sets *e=z_{1-α/2}√{V(p_s)}* and `moe.sw=2`

sets i.e., *e=\frac{z_{1-α/2}√{V(p_s)}}{p_U}*.
