Estimating sample size for precision: precisely 0.1.0

I’m pleased to announce that precisely 0.1.0 is now on CRAN! precisely is a study planning tool to calculate sample size based on precision rather than power. Power calculations focus on whether or not an estimate will be statistically significant; calculations of precision are based on the same principles as power calculation but turn the focus to the width of the confidence interval. precisely currently supports sample size calculations for risk differences, rate differences, risk ratios, rate ratios, and odds ratios.

An introduction to precisely and ggdag: tools for modern methods in R

Modern epidemiology gives us insight into study planning and causal inference, but the success of these approaches require friendly and accessible software. I will discuss two R packages for modern methods in study design and causal inference: …
