Comparing n4Studies with other applications, it covers several more types of epidemiological study designs, gives similar results for estimation of infinite/finite population mean and infinite/finite proportion from GRANMO, for comparing two independent means from BioStats, for comparing two independent proportions from EpiCal application. When using the same parameters, n4Studies gives similar results to STATA, epical package in R, PS, G*Power, and OpenEpi.
Conclusion: “n4Studies" can be an alternative tool for calculating the sample size. It may be useful to students, lecturers and researchers in conducting their research projects.
