nederhof_2014: Data based on Nederhof, Ormel, and Oldehinkel (2014)

Description Usage Format Details References


Synthetic data, (N = 310) based on Nederhof, Ormel, and Oldehinkel (2014). The 11 years old participants are divided into three groups: Sustainers, Shifters, and Comparison group, based on their performance on a sustained-attention task and on a shifting-set task. The outcome depressive episode (D: no depressive episode, versus experienced an episode) is predicted by the categorical variable early life stress (ES: Low versus High), the standardized continuous variable recent stress, RS, and the interaction between both predictors. The continuous variable recent stress, RS, is standardized to improve the interpretation of main effects when interactions exist.
