No heuristics, just try and see.
For tables of ~ 10k pages, I set statistics to 100/200.
For ~ 100k pages, I set them to 500 or more.
I don't know the exact relation.

I rerun an analyze and see the results... :-)
If you mean checking the usefulness, I can see it only
under heavy load, if particular db queries run in the order
of a few milliseconds.
If I see normal queries that take longer and longer, or
they even appear in the server's log (> 500 ms), then
I know an analyze is needed, or statistics should be set higher.
