- This sample size calculation is for data collection of discrete data. It is necessary to know the appropriate sample size
- Discrete data includes any data that can be counted, such as transactions, calls, subscriber, errors, etc
1. Enter the number of defectives beside Total Defectives. For example, repeat call volume
2. Enter the total volume of data to collect under Total Volume, such as a call volume
- Confidence Level is taken at 95% which gives the result 1.96
- Precision is taken at 0.004 for the calculation
- Proportion Defective is taken at 0.04
- If sample size is large and unreasonable to collect, then the team can take a conscious call to reduce precision to 1/5
3. Sample size will be automatically calculated and displaced beside Sample Size
