We compiled a list of biostatistics and bioinformatics online resources for your convenience. For online national or Hawaiʻi state statistical data resources, please refer to JABSOM Health Science Library Statistical Data Sources. BQHS strongly recommends that researchers contact a professional biostatistician before starting a research study and/or data analysis project.

For a sample from a population with a known proabability distribution, a p-value can be calculated using an online calculator. The program was developed by Dr. Hossein Arsham of the University of Baltimore.Online P-value Calculator
Power and Sample Size Calculators
Note: Power and sample size calculation is intended to help design a study. It is not intended to be conducted after the data have already been collected. We highly recommend that a researcher who is planning for a study consults a professional biostatistician well before the initiation of the study.
