Abstract:
Several software packages for sample size determination have been designed and presented up to now but nearly all of them need a user with a good knowledge about biostatistics and statistical tests. The aim of this research is to evaluate the primary version of a new software compared to some other available sample size software packages. Visual basic 6 was the language for programming. Algorithm used for designing sample size calculation is taken mainly from WHO recommendations in WHO different publications. For primary evaluation purpose, 23 academic staff of Ardabil University of Medical Sciences and Public Health School of Tehran University of Medical Sciences were selected and presented the different capabilities of software and then, designed questionnaire for evaluation of it was filled by them.
