The ESFA employer satisfaction 2017 to 2018: minimum sample size calculator is designed to help providers calculate the minimum number of responses required for the survey.
As in previous years, you will only be able to obtain a score in the survey if the number of employers responding represents a sufficiently large sample of all the in-scope employers in your organisation during the survey period.
The minimum number that will be needed to guarantee a valid score is based on the sample size required to give 95% confidence that the score is accurate to +/-5%. The minimum sample size calculator will help you to estimate this figure.
