Data from a study of health promotion of firefighters (Elliot et al., 2007). These data are also used as an example in the Bayesian mediation paper of Yuan and MacKinnon (2009) and Nuijten et al. (2014).

A data frame with 354 observations on the following 3 variables.

`y`

Dependent variable: reported eating of fruits and vegetables

`m`

Mediating variable: change from baseline to followup in knowledge of the benefits of eating fruits and vegetables

`x`

Independent variable: randomized exposure to an intervention

The data are centered.

## Not run:

### Note that the Bayes factor is 1.96, instead of 1.94 as reported
### in the paper (Nuijten et al., 2014).
### This is caused by rounding differences; the posterior probabilities are equal.
