Hi arl_stat,

❝ Please help me to understand the alpha value considered for sample size estimation.


α is the nominal level of the test. In BE generally 0.05, which gives a two-sided 100 × (1 – 2α) = 90% CI. α is fixed by the authority, i.e., you are not free to choose it in sample size estimation.

To call the statistician after the experiment is done
may be no more than asking him to perform a postmortem examination:
he may be able to say what the experiment died of.    R.A. Fisher
