Abstract

Miettinen (1968, Biometrics 24, 339-352) presented an approximation for power and sample size for testing the differences between proportions in the matched-pair case. Duffy (1984, Biometrics 40, 1005-1015) gave the exact power for this case and showed that Miettinen's approximation tends to slightly overestimate the power or underestimate the sample size necessary for the design power. A simple alternative approximation that is more conservative is presented here. In many cases, the sample size for the independent-sample case provides a conservative approximation for the matched-pair design.
