To determine the sample size for a confidence interval to have a specified margin-of-error we need to apply the following formula: N = Z_Value(alpha / 2) * Sigma / (margin-of-error)^2. Where alpha is the specified level of significance.

Sample size for hypothesis testing on the standard deviation

The BIS.Net Team The BIS.Net Team

It can be argued that philosophically the standard deviation is more important than the mean. The standard deviation is a measure of variability and some have called variability Quality’s biggest enemy.

Sample size for hypothesis testing for the ratio of two standard deviations

The BIS.Net Team The BIS.Net Team

The theory behind hypothesis testing for the ratio of two standard deviations is based on the theory for hypothesis testing of two variances where the variance is equal to the standard deviation ^2.
