The determination of the sample size necessary to meet specified significance level and power considerations for multivariate data can be quite difficult. In this paper we propose a quick simple method of approximation. Also included is simulations that indicate the approximation is quite appropriate for bivariate normal data test of the mean vector. © 1989.
