This paper considers the different methods for determining sample sizes for Wald, likelihood ratio, and score tests for logistic regression. We review some recent methods, report the results of a simulation study com- paring each of the methods for each of the three types of test, and provide Mathematica code for calculating sample size. We consider a variety of covariate distributions, and find that a calculation method based on a first order expansion of the likelihood ratio test statistic performs consistently well in achieving a target level of power for each of the three types of test.
