From: A priori postulated and real power in cluster randomized trials: mind the gap

Figure 1

Real power of cluster randomized trials according to the discrepancy between the a priori postulated and a posteriori estimated intraclass correlation coefficients. The effect size to be detected is fixed at 0.25 and power at 80%. g is the number of clusters per arm, m is the average cluster size and N is the total number per intervention arm considering an a priori postulated ICC of 0.005 or 0.02.
