We develop simple quantitative formulas for the inverse localization length of a one-dimensional sequence of scatterers that are valid in the strong and in the weak scattering limits. These formulas are shown to agree with numerical results obtained for chains with up to 106 scatterers. We discuss the special circumstances under which a recent random-phase result becomes quantitatively correct.
