Daniel,
I could not resist. Here is some code that you might want to adapt.
/****************************************************************************************************
* Program name: *
* Purpose: Demo of selecting sample size using bootstrap
*
* Description: Let us asume that we need to select a sample size that will
detect an error in a *
* population unsing bootstrap method. In this example the rate
of errors is about 20%. *
* In this case we use a sample of a 15 and want to estimate the
probability of getting *
* at least one error. We draw 500 samples of 15 each and look
at the distribution. *
* In this exmaple I used proc gchart to show the distribution
from where I can read or *
* see the probability to get ate least one error if I should
decide to have a sample of*
* 100. The sample size (100 in this case) can be increased or
decreased utill the *
* desired probability are reached.
*
* (In my experiments a sample size of ten will give one error 87% of the
time *
* A sample of 15 will give a 96% probability of detecting
the error *

If you have questions send me an email.
