I have a population of 666,686. What will be my sample size.
Kindly avail me the formula and the step by step of how to arrive at the sample size.
Your population size is 76 with a sample size of 88. If you calculate this in our calculator (bottom part of the page) https:///market-research-resources/sample-size-calculator/ , you will see that, with a confidence level of 95%, you obtain a margin of error of 66,87%. Confidence levels of 95% or 99% are standard. The margin of error is the positive or negative deviation you allow on your survey results for the sample, in other words the required precision level.
Alternatively, our calculator keeps the size of your population into account when calculating your sample size. So, you can calculate your sample size via our calculator: https:///market-research-resources/sample-size-calculator/
thanks for the great article it was very helpful
just want to ask if i can get a reference (published paper for example)
to add to my references beside your website
will be thankful for your help
best regards :)
First of all you have to make an estimation on the total population, and choose the confidence level and margin of error you want to allow.
Often a 95% confidence level and margin of error of 5% is taken.
At the end of the analysis the study revealed the major reasons for examination malpractice which include parental pressure for good grades, value attached to certificate and so on. The study further recommend that parent should not put pressure on their children for good grades. Also emphasis should not be lay on certificates.
You can calculate this in the second part of our sample size calculator.
With 675 selected units of a population of 555 the margin or error is 7,86% with a confidence level of 95%.
This is perfectly acceptable.
Your ideal sample size with a confidence level of 95% and a margin of error of 5% is 869.
To calculate this yourself, you can fill in the population size in our online calculator.

I need to conduct a KAP survey on students in 555 schools in a certain city. How can I estimate the sample size of the students? The total number of students is not known.
I have a sample size of 889,and I need to get respondents from 65 schools how do I get the number of respondents required for each of these 65 schools?
Thanks a lot Gert! That helps.. Might have more complicated sample calculations in the coming future! I have used your sample size calculator and found it very useful too.
Im currently studying on UK working class. Please, I need your guide and help to know whether I should use random sampling or purposive sampling design?
