The ever increasing need for a representative statistical sample in empirical research has created the demand for an effective method of determining sample size.  To address the existing gap, Krejcie & Morgan (1970) came up with a table for determining sample size for a given population for easy reference.

 

Table 1: Table for Determining Sample Size for a Finite Population   krejcie and morgan table of determining sample size

The Table is constructed using the following formula for determining sample size: krejcie-and-morgan-formula-for-determining-sample-size-

NOTE:

There is no need of using the formula since the table of determining sample size has all the provisions you require to arrive at your sample size.
