If you can't find them there, give me a call and I will send them to you.
Both yet untested by me, I only tested some other stand-alone power/sample
If you use/test these or other concerning SAS macros, please report your
experience, judgments, critics on these to SAS-L (or to me at least).
There are several comprehensive reviews on the internet indicating sites
with articles and software for power and sample size. Search for
"statistical power" and "sample size". I don't know them by head, I've got
them at home.
