# sesamesim: Simulated Sesame Street Data In bain: Bayes Factors for Informative Hypotheses

## Description

This is a simulated counterpart of part of the Sesame Street data presented by Stevens (1996, Appendix A) concerning the effect of the first year of the Sesame street series on the knowledge of 240 children in the age range 34 to 69 months. We will use the following variables: sex; site of child's origin; setting in which Sesame Street is watched; age; whether or not the child is encouraged to watch; Peabody metal age score; score on numbers test before, after and in a follow up measurement; and scores on knowledge of body parts, letters, forms, numbers, relations, and classifications, both before and after watching Sesame Street for a year.
