A dataset containing baseline variables' data from seven randomised trials authored by Yuhji Saitoh and tested by Carlisle JB and Loadsman JA (Anaesthesia 2017; Appendix S2 references number 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 9 and 14). Results obtained with this example can be compared with results in the Table 1 of Carlisle JB and Loadsman JA. Small differences are to be expected, as p-values are obtained by means of simulations. For the sake of a faster testing, the example sets the number of simulations at 100. However, we recommend at least 5000 simulations to be performed in order to obtain more accurate results.
A data frame with 93 rows and 9 variables:
trial - trial identification number;
variable - variable identification number;
group - group of participants identification number;
participants - number of participants;
mean - reported mean or proportion;
sd - reported standard-deviation (for continuous variables only);
decimals - number of decimal places to which the corresponding mean or proportion was reported;
type - type of variable. 1 indicates a continuous variable; 2 indicates a categorical variable;
name - name of the randomised trial (first author name and publication year) to which data concern.
