The POWER Procedure |

Displayed Output |

If you use the PLOTONLY option in the PROC POWER statement, the procedure displays only graphical output. Otherwise, the displayed output of the POWER procedure includes the following:

the "Fixed Scenario Elements" table, which shows all applicable single-valued analysis parameters, in the following order: distribution, method, parameters input explicitly, and parameters supplied with defaults

an output table showing the following when applicable (in order): the index of the scenario, all multivalued input, ancillary results, the primary computed result, and error descriptions

plots (if requested)

For each input parameter, the order of the input values is preserved in the output.

Ancillary results include the following:

Actual Power, the achieved power, if it differs from the input (Nominal) power value

Actual Prob(Width), the achieved precision probability, if it differs from the input (Nominal) probability value

Actual Alpha, the achieved significance level, if it differs from the input (Nominal) alpha value

fractional sample size, if the NFRACTIONAL option is used in the analysis statement

If sample size is the result parameter and the NFRACTIONAL option is used in the analysis statement, then both "Fractional" and "Ceiling" sample size results are displayed. Fractional sample sizes correspond to the "Nominal" values of power or precision probability. Ceiling sample sizes are simply the fractional sample sizes rounded up to the nearest integer; they correspond to "Actual" values of power or precision probability.
