sample size

Post by » Thu Jul 19, 2018 3:46 pm

Hi, I am trying to find sample size for my project. Based on the PLS book, the sample size identified based on a maximum number of arrows pointing on one construct . but in the table, only max 10 arrows demonstrated. I have 12 arrows pointing on one dependent construct can anyone kindly guide me how identify sample size? I don't have an exact number of my population, therefore, can not use formula. appreciate your help

Ideally, you do a power calculation using G*Power a free software.

Here you can find some information on that: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=4009&p=27026
