O'Brien Kaiser's Repeated-Measures Dataset with Covariate

Description

This is the long version of the OBrienKaiser dataset from the car pakage adding a random covariate age. Originally the dataset ist taken from O'Brien and Kaiser (1985). The description from OBrienKaiser says: "These contrived repeated-measures data are taken from O'Brien and Kaiser (1985). The data are from an imaginary study in which 16 female and male subjects, who are divided into three treatments, are measured at a pretest, postest, and a follow-up session; during each session, they are measured at five occasions at intervals of one hour. The design, therefore, has two between-subject and two within-subject factors."

Format

A data frame with 240 rows and 7 variables.
