This is how I decide RAW vs. JPG...
1

You need raw when the conditions are not optimal to shoot jpg. Under bright, sunny skies, I almost always shoot jpg. Also, when I am not trying to photograph something seriously, i.e. regular weekend photography, I always go the jpg route.

But, if I am on vacation at Bryce Canyon or Zion, etc. then I will shoot raw+jpg. I shoot raw+jpg only because I use raw as a preview. I believe if I underttok a special journey or effort to get to a place to photograph it then I will shoot raw+jpg. I do not want to take any chances by only shooting jpgs.

But if the subject has plenty of lighting then most modern cameras will give a lot of latitude to even work with jpgs alone.
