Description

An illustrative example of network meta-analysis with a binary outcome.

Usage

1
data("dat.copd")

Format

A data frame with 3 studies and 4 treatments, with the following 4 variables.

sid

a numeric vector indicating study IDs.

tid

a numeric vector indicating treatment IDs.

e

a numeric vector indicating event counts.

n

a numeric vector indicating sample sizes.

Details

The dataset was reported in Table 1 of Woods et al. (2010), and was also used as an illustrative example in the netmeta. It investigates the effects of four treatments on chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), including 1) placebo; 2) fluticasone; 3) salmeterol; and 4) salmeterol fluticasone combination (SFC). Of note, Woods et al. (2010) originally used this dataset to illustrate the usage of network meta-analysis of count and hazard ratio statistics; this package only focuses on the event counts to show the relevant functions' usage for binary outcomes.
