Dear all,
I found a discrepancy while performing a power calculation for a two sample
t-test in R and S-PLUS, respectively.
For given values of sample number (5 each), sd (0.2) , significance level
(0.01), and a desired power (80%) I looked for the difference in means.
These values differ: 0.5488882 in R and 0.4322771 in S-PLUS (see dump
below).
Did I overlook any detail or confuse some parameters?
Thanks for your help,
Joern Quedenau
Here are the commands & outputs from both tools:
R 1.4.0
> power.t.test(n=5, sd=0.2, sig.level=0.01, power=0.8, type="two.sample",
alternative="two.sided")
Two-sample t test power calculation
n = 5
delta = 0.5488882
sd = 0.2
sig.level = 0.01
power = 0.8
alternative = two.sided
NOTE: n is number in *each* group
S-PLUS 2000 Professional Release 2:
> normal.sample.size(n1=5, n2=5, mean=0, sd1=0.2, sd2=0.2, power=0.8,
alpha=0.01, alternative="two.sided")
mean1 sd1 mean2 sd2 delta alpha power n1 n2 prop.n2
1 0 0.2 0.4322771 0.2 0.4322771 0.01 0.8 5 5 1
