BACKGROUND Effect size reporting and interpreting practices have been extensively recommended in academic journals when analyzing primary outcomes of all empirical studies. Accordingly, the sample squared multiple correlation coefficient is the commonly reported strength of association index in practical applications of multiple linear regression. METHOD This paper examines the sample size procedures proposed by Bonett and Wright for precise interval estimation of the squared multiple…

Sample size calculations for model validation in linear regression analysis
The results show that the exact approach has a distinct advantage over the current method with greater accuracy and high robustness.
Sample size planning for multiple correlation: reply to Shieh (2013).
A simple 2-step sample size formula for desired absolute precision is proposed and its accuracy is evaluated under the conditions proposed by Shieh and indicates that the Bonett-Wright sample sizes formula for relative prediction and the new 2- step sample size model for absolute precision are remarkably accurate.
