Dear Dr. Mel, we are developing an evaluation program on the operation of the Action Committee Against Narcotics (ACAN). I am not sure about the sample size we need to conduct the survey. Could you please tell me if it is better to have a big sample size?

The sample size affects the power of a statistical test greatly. The larger the sample size, the smaller the variance of the sampling distribution of the mean. But you must remember that a larger sample size means a higher economic cost also. Hence, you may calculate the sample size based on your research funding.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
