Selecting a Statistically Valid Sample Size
January 15, 2018 at 4:51 pm #55917
Does anyone know of any free sampling tools or the most common accepted methods for selecting a statistically valid sample size, using the following:
-Population size (e.g., # of calls, # of claims, # of enrollment, # of letters sent to members, etc.)
-Expected performance (although this factor isn’t a requirement for us)
Background: I work in the health insurance industry and would like to find a method to select a statistically valid sample size to assess the accuracy of various transactions such as # of calls handled by our Customer Service department, # of claims processed, etc. (for more transaction types, see examples listed after “population size” line item, above).
Thank you!January 16, 2018 at 8:10 am #202136
I guess I don’t understand why you are looking for free sample tools when you work in the health insurance industry. Given that line of work your organization has to employ statisticians. Indeed, your kind of work should guarantee your company has an entire section of statistician. I would recommend talking to one of these people about your problem.January 16, 2018 at 8:45 am #202138
If you do a Google search there are a number of free sample size calculators available to help you with your question.
There is also this link on this site that might work for you.January 17, 2018 at 1:37 pm #202156
