# Plot for sample size/Power according to ranges of effects estimation for Logistic Regression Mixed Model

I am a junior statistician and naïve in sample size estimations and I have to make a plot in which the power and sample size could be estimated according to different effects (OR or beta). My model will be a logistic regression mixed model, where y=Mortality (0, 1) and treatment has 4 levels (A, B, C, D) Model <- glmer(Mortality ~ Treatment + Var1 + Var2 + Var3 + (1|Subject), family = "binomial"(link = logit), data = Data)

I have seen this script that could work for a simple linear regression:

B <- function(beta, n, sd = 6) {
sem <- sd / sqrt(n)
1 - pnorm(1.64 - beta / sem)
}

n <- c(100,200,300,400,500,600,700,1000,2000,3000, 4000, 10000)
beta <- c(0.3,0.4, 0.5,0.6,0.7,0.8,0.9)

library(tidyverse)
outer(beta, n, B) %>%
data.frame(row.names = beta) %>%
setNames(n) %>%
rownames_to_column("beta") %>%
gather(n, power, -beta) %>%
mutate(
n = as.numeric(n),
beta = factor(beta, unique(beta))) %>%
ggplot(aes(n, power, colour = beta, group = beta)) +
geom_line(aes(n, power, colour = beta, group = beta),size=1) + geom_point() + scale_y_continuous(labels = scales::percent, breaks =c(0.2,0.3,0.4,0.5,0.6,0.7,0.8,0.9,1)) + scale_x_log10(breaks=c(100,200,300,400,500,600,700,800,1000,3350,10000,35500,100000,10000)) + labs(x = "sample size (N)", y = "power (%)") + theme(panel.background = element_blank()) Any ideas?
