Data Analysis

The research team used a sample size derived from the Yamane’s formula which is given as n=N/(1+Ne^2) relative to the target population. Where n=Corrected sample size, N=population size and e=Margin of error (MoE)=0.05.

Tamale has a 2013 projected population of 950,124 according to the 2010 population and housing Census. The sample size therefore is given as n=95,124/(1+95,124(0.05)^2), n=400

A sample size of 400 was arrived at after using the Yamane formula. However, due to the limitations of the study, the research team was able to reach out to 187 respondents.
