Sample size calculation

How to calculate sample size for purposive sampling (Non random sampling)? We have 25 factors identified for our evaluation. How to calculate exact sample size for non random sampling?

Confidence intervals and standard error rates have no meaning when the sampling (or at least the assignment to test groups) is not random regarding the factors that you want to test.

There is no way to estimate sample size when the sample is from non-random sampling. One can only assume the use of random sampling to set the minimum. Typically for any evaluation, the assumption of random sampling suggests a size of 780 cases for an expected weak effect size, 123 for an expected medium effect size, and 46 cases for an expected strong effect size, to achieve 95% in confidence and 80% in statistical power. It thus depends on the weakest effect size expected.

No issues.Our institution is developing an SRACP evaluation program, but we have found it challenging to identify suitable outcome indicators. We’re attempting to evaluate the program, and it would be better if we could show how it has impacted society. Could you offer us some suggestions on where to look for some suitable scales?

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?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
