To calculate Cohen's d, we need the population mean, the sample mean, and the pooled standard deviation.

Given:
Population mean: $\mu = 46$
Sample mean: $\bar{X} = 47$
Sample variance: $s^2 = 16$

To calculate the pooled standard deviation, we can use the formula:

$$s_p = \sqrt{\frac{(n_1-1)s_1^2 + (n_2-1)s_2^2}{n_1 + n_2 - 2}}$$

where $n_1$ and $n_2$ are the sample sizes, and $s_1$ and $s_2$ are the sample standard deviations.

Since we only have information for one sample, we can use the sample variance as an estimate for the population variance:

$$s^2 \approx \sigma^2$$

Substituting the given values in the formula, we have:

$$s_p = \sqrt{\frac{(n-1)s^2}{n-1}} = s$$

where $n$ is the sample size.

Therefore, the pooled standard deviation is equal to the sample standard deviation:

$$s_p = s = \sqrt{16} = 4$$

Now we can calculate Cohen's d, which is the difference between the sample mean and the population mean, divided by the pooled standard deviation:

$$d = \frac{\bar{X} - \mu}{s_p} = \frac{47 - 46}{4} = \frac{1}{4} = 0.25$$

Answer: The value of Cohen's d is 0.25.

Your boss asks you to plan the sample size for a randomized, double-blind, controlled trial in the clinical development of a cure for irritable bowl disease. Current standard treatment shall be compared with a new treatment in this trial. The S3-guideline of AWM demonstrated a mean change of the summary score of the validated health related quality of life questionnaire at 8 weeks of 16 with standard deviation 23 under standard treatment. You quote the drop-out rate of 11% from literature (previous phase of clinical development). Your research yielded a clinically important effect of 4 that has been found to be the Minimal Clinically Important Difference (MCID). In order to demonstrate superiority of the new treatment over standard of care, you assume that the change in of the summary score of the validated health related quality of life questionnaire follows a normal distribution, and that the standard deviation is the same for both treatments. How many patientes would one need to recruit for the trial to demonstrate the clinically interesting difference between treatments at significance level 5% with 95% power?
