Hello,

I want to ask why the following code is not working:

proc power;
TwoSampleFreq
test =pchi
groupproportions =(1 0.80)
nullproportiondiff =0
NPerGroup =20
SIDES =1
POWER =.
Alpha =0.05;
run;

invalid input
WARNING: The magnitude of the effect is ill-defined in one of the scenarios in the output table.

I think that it's due to my assumption that 100% of the patients in the placebo group develop the disease. Is it too strong?
Thanks in advance,
Best regards,
Cyril

You got it. Underlying any experimental design is the concept that there will be some variability in the process. If you are requiring a 100% effect (or 0%) in one group, then you have no variability in that group.
