^Sample Size and Power Estimation for Single ICC^
---------------------------------------------------

.^sampicc <p1> <p0> <reps>^ [, ^A^lpha(#) ^P^ower(#) ^S^ample(#) ^W^idt
> h(#) ^CI^ ]

^Description^
^-----------^

^sampicc^ computes the sample size or, alternatively, the power required to tes
> t an
ICC (p1) against a null value (p0).  In addition, the program will compute the
> sample
size for a specified width of a confidence interval for the ICC.  There are two
>  forms
of the command:

^FORM 1^: To compute the sample size for a test of a hypothesized value against
>  a null
^------^  value, three inputs are required:

^p1^  --- the hypothesized ICC
^p0^  --- the null value for ICC
^reps^ --- the number of replicates taken on each subject (must be a
> n integer)

^Options for Form 1^
^------------------^
^alpha(#)^   The Type 1 error value (default is 5%)
^power(#)^   The power for the test (default is 80%)
^sample(#)^   The number of subjects to be tested.  If specified, th
> e program computes
power for the given sample size

^Syntax for Form 1^
^-----------------^

.^sampicc <p1> <p0> <reps>^, <options>

^NOTE to Form 1^: To be conservative, all sample size estimates are rounded to
> the next highest
integer value, if the solution involves a decimal (e.g., 15.1 r
> esolves to 16)

^FORM 2^: To compute the sample size for a specified width or, alternatively, t
> o compute the width
^------^   of a confidence interval for a given sample size, the ^ci^ option mu
> st be specified.

^p1^  --- the hypothesized ICC
^reps^ --- the number of replicates taken on each subject (must be an
> integer)

^Options for Form 2^
^------------------^
^ci^      ci ^is required^ for estimations relating to confiden
> ce intervals
^alpha(#)^    In this form, alpha(#) refers to 100(1-alpha)% CI lev
> el. The default
alpha is .05 (i.e., 95% CI)
^sample(#)^   The number of subjects to be tested.
^width(#)^   The desired width of the confidence interval. This va
> lue must be between
0 and 1

^Syntax for Form 2^
^-----------------^

. ^sampicc p1 reps, w(#) ci^

. ^sampicc p1 reps, s(#) ci^

^Examples^
^--------^

To compute sample size for an ICC against a null value, assuming a critical lev
> el of
5% and power of 80% (Form 1)

.^sampicc .4 .1 3^

To compute power, for an ICC against a null, with the sample size given (Form 1
> )

. ^sampicc .6 .1 3, s(15)^

To compute sample size for a specified width of the confidence interval (Form 2
> )

. ^sampicc .5 2, w(.15) ci^

To estimate width of a 90% CI for a given sample size (Form 2)

. ^sampicc .5 2, s(100) alpha(.10) ci^
