**Data Input for Sample Size Estimation** is a table of 3 columns

- Each row contains data from a separate study
- Col 1 = probability of Type I error (alpha)
- Col 2 = power (1-beta)
- Col 3 = expected correlation coefficient ρ

**Data Input for Power Estimation** is a table of 3 columns

- Each row contains data from a separate study
- Col 1 = probability of Type I error (α)
- Col 2 = sample size in the study
- Col 3 = correlation coefficient (ρ) observed

**Data Input for Confidence Interval Study** is is a table of 3 columns

- Each row contains data from a separate study
- Col 1 = percent confidence (usually 95)
- Col 2 = sample size
- Col 3 = correlation coefficient (ρ)

**Data Input for Pilot Study** is for a single plan, a single column with 4 rows

- Row 1 : Percent Confidence required, usually 95 or 99
- Row 2 : Planned Correlation coefficient (ρ)
- Row 3 : Sample Size Interval, usually 5
- Row 4 : Maximum Sample size, usually 50
