  MB = TRUE
)

Arguments

iterations

number of independent iterations of the simulation

beta

vector of fixed effect parameters

rho

intra-class correlation parameter

phi

autocorrelation parameter

tau1_ratio

ratio of treatment effect variance to intercept variance

tau_corr

correlation between case-specific treatment effects and intercepts

design

design matrix. If not specified, it will be calculated based on m, n, and MB.

m

number of cases. Not used if design is specified.

n

number of measurement occasions. Not used if design is specified.

MB

If true, a multiple baseline design will be used; otherwise, an AB design will be used. Not used if design is specified.

Value

A matrix reporting the mean and variance of the effect size estimates and various associated statistics.
