Copy to clipboard as a bitmap and insert into Microsoft Word ® or other word processing program Graphs Print directly Copy to clipboard as data and insert into Microsoft Word® or other word processing program Export as bitmap (BMP), Windows Metafile (WMF) or Windows enhanced Metafile (EMF) and insert into Microsoft Word®, PowerPoint® or other programs New! Reports Save as RTF file or copy to clipboard and insert into Word ® or other word processing programs. Stored Scenarios (Sensitivity analysis) Print directly Copy to clipboard as data and insert into Microsoft Excel® or other spreadsheet New! Copy to clipboard as a bitmap and insert into Microsoft Word® or other word processing program Tables and graphs Pivot the tables interactively New! Display several graphs at once to assess the impact of factors in isolation or in combination with each other. New! Graphs are linked to the tables - Drag and drop columns in table, and the graphs are updated as well. New! Graphs can be saved as BMP, WMF, EMF files and easily exported to Word, PowerPoint, and other programs. New! Tabulate and graph precision (confidence interval) and standard error as well as power for proportions and means. Tools and Features Find the sample size for a given level of power Assign subjects to groups using allocation ratio Store and restore any set of parameters Apply Cohen's effect size conventions Store scenarios to list (sensitivity analysis) Customize the spin control for sample size Customize data entry Set alpha and tails, link to confidence interval Customize the number of decimals displayed Display power using digits or bar graph Statistical Procedures t-tests and z-tests One group against a null of zero One group against a user-specified null Paired/change against a null of zero Paired/change against a user-specified null Two independent groups, enter difference score Two independent groups, enter mean for each group Proportions One group against a null of 50% One group against a user-specified null Two independent groups (Eight computational options for power including Fisher exact test. Indices include risk difference, relative risk, and odds ratio). McNemar test of paired proportions KxC test of independent proportions* Sign tests Correlations One group against a null of zero One group against a user-specified null* Two groups* Analysis of variance/covariance One way analysis of variance/covariance Two way fixed effects factorial anova/ancova Three way fixed effects anova/ancova Multiple hierarchical linear regression Templates for common designs including covariates followed by main effects; main effects followed by interactions; dummy-coded variables; and polynomial regression Customize the design with up to 10 sets of variables and up to 99 variables per set Computes power for the increment to R-squared at each step and also for the cumulative R-squared at each step Compute power for sequential sets combined Logistic regression* New! One continuous covariate Two continuous covariates, one partialled Two continuous covariates combined One categorical covariate up to 5 levels Survival analysis* New! Accrual options - Prior to study, constant rate, or varies Hazard - Constant rate or varies Attrition (Drop-outs) - None, constant rate, or varies Equivalence tests New! Proportions* Means General Case Compute power using the non-central t distribution, non-central F, or non-central chi-square distributions Power, confidence intervals, tolerance intervals Compute power for all procedures Compute precision (expected width of confidence intervals) for t-tests, z-tests, one sample proportions, two independent sample proportions, and one sample correlation Compute tolerance intervals for t-tests Computational Algorithms Includes exact algorithms for all procedures except where noted by (*). Help and Technical Support Interactive guide Continuous summary Tip of the day Windows Help System including Table of Contents, Index, Step-by-Step Help Technical support by e-mail or phone Printed manual The printed manual explains the logic and proper application of power analysis. It also includes worked examples for each statistical procedure, and details for all algorithms An extensive Help system provides step-by step instructions for each procedure.
