# How to write statistical analysis section? - Grant proposal (Aug/13/2006 )

Hi,

Can you please help me with the proper format of writing a statistical analysis section; I'm learning to write a grant as preparation to earn my degree...

I have everything in hand regarding the kind of test I should use, the sample size, and power calculation the problem is I'm not sure of what I should and should not include in the grant?

Here what I'm planning to write: The goal will be to assemble a cohort of 100 patients and similar number of age, gender and ethnicity matched healthy individual controls. Power analysis is conducted using one-way ANOVA comparisons, a significance level of 0.05, and a power of 90%. The numbers of samples necessary in each of the two groups being compared are determined at varying effect sizes, and effect size 0.5 is chosen.

can you help me,

Thanks.

Since you are working with medical stats, look at th epaper: "A Guideline for Reporting Results of Statistical Analysis in Japanese Journal of Clinical Oncology" from H. Fukuda & Y. Ohashi. In: Jpn J Clin Oncol 1997;27(3) 121–127. It is a nice and comprehensive overview of what is necessary and what should be avoided in papers, but also works for proposals I think (I'm not familar with clinical statistics, they have special demands if I noticed correkt).
I found it free in the web but can attach if necessary.
