 # Sample Size Calculator

Sample Size- Infinite Population(where the population is greater than 50,000) = Z2*(p)*(1 p)C2

Confidence Level: %

### What is Meant by Sample Size?

In Statistics, the sample size is defined as the number of observations which are taken from the population where the statistical interference for the whole population is made. For example, if you test 50 species, then your sample size is 50. The sample size is usually determined based on the time, cost, and the convenience of collecting the data. The formula to calculate sample size is given as

Sample size =

$$\begin{array}{l}\frac{Z^{2}p(1-p)}{C^{2}}\end{array}$$

Where

Z = z- value

C = confidence interval

p = percentage population (or prevalence)
