  • Biostatistics Seminar Series: Power analysis & sample size planning
Month Flat Week Day
Date: Friday, October 02, 2020 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Power analysis & sample size planning: from the perspective of reviewers and statistical consultants

Presentations on power analysis often go over how power analyses work and how to conduct them. This talk proceeds from a different perspective. First, why do reviewers (e.g., grant reviewers and the IRB) care about power analyses? What is it they’re looking for? Second, what should people understand about power analyses in order to have a productive meeting with a statistical consultant and to ensure that they get the best help possible?

This seminar, the second in the NC TraCS Biostatistics Fall 2020 Seminar series, will equip you with the knowledge you need about power analyses and how to best prepare for a statistical consultation.
