Sometimes small sample sizes are planned and expected. Sometimes not. For example, the cost, ethical, and logistical realities of animal experiments often lead to samples of fewer than 10 animals.
Other times, a solid sample size is intended based on a priori power calculations. Yet recruitment difficulties or logistical problems lead to a much smaller sample. In this webinar, we will discuss methods for analyzing small samples. Special focus will be on the case of unplanned small sample sizes and the issues and strategies to consider.
