## Would you be so kind answering our questions? [Power / Sample Size]

❝ ❝ study planned for 90% power: The chance to obtain a post hoc power of ≥95% is ~35%.

❝

❝ Is it a thumb rule?

No; obtained in

*simulations*by the R-code I posted above. There is only one – rather trivial – rule of thumb: The chance to get a

*post hoc*power which is

*either*lower

*or*higher than the target is ~50%.

❝ how it should be calculated?

Once you performed the simulations, use

`cat("Simulated studies with post hoc power \u22650.95:", sprintf("%.2f%%",`

100*length(res[, 3][res[, 3] >= 0.95])/nsims), "\n")

`Simulated studies with post hoc power ≥0.95: 34.97%`

Adapt the relevant data according to your needs. For CV 0.30, T/R 0.90, and target power 80% you would get only 7.77% in the range 0.95–0.99 and 8.64% ≥0.95.

❝ Yes, on getting posthoc analysis, i found three aspects what you said:

❝ After experiment, it came to know that

❝ 1. CV getting lower

❝ 2. GMR close to 1

❝ 3. No dropouts/withdrawls (though prior consideration of 10% dropouts)

Fine. Can you explain to us

*why*you performed a “posthoc analysis” at all? What did you want to achieve? To repeat ElMaestro:

❝ ❝ ❝ Try and ask yourself which question post-hoc power actually answers. Try and formulate it in a very specific sentence.

For the 5

^{th}time (already asked #1, #2, #3, #4): An example would help.

We tried to answer

*your*questions. It would be nice if you answer

*ours*as well.
