Dear Statalist,

I have a question about power calculations. I currently have a
baseline survey dataset, and we are planning the followup. I would
like to do sample size calculations using various
assumptions/requirements, and on several variables. However, the
-sampsi- command in Stata only allows for power calculations with
uneven sample sizes, not sample size calculations, unless you have a
fixed ratio. Other programs such as Optimal Design appear to have this
feature, but it is unwieldy to perform many power calculations using
different variables and parameters. Does anyone have a solution to
this problem in Stata?
