Hi there,
Could someone please help me get this sample size calculation right?
I would like to calculate the sample size for a randomized controlled trial.
Based on a systematic review, the effect of the primary outcome (insomnia severity) is expected to be Hedges's g= 1.03.
The power should be 0.80, alpha is 0.05 (twotailed).
I am expecting a dropout rate of 25%.
I found this formula:
If I want to fill in this formula I am missing the standard deviation.
Could someone please advise me on what is the best way to perform this calculation?
I do have Stata 16 aswell where I see options to do this analysis. However, I am not sure which exact method to use.
Best regards,
Laura
