R Dataset / Package HSAUR / BtheB

Documentation

On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the BtheB data set which pertains to Beat the Blues Data . The BtheB data set is found in the HSAUR R package. You can load the BtheB data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("BtheB"). This will load the data into a variable called BtheB. If R says the BtheB data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("HSAUR") and then attempt to reload the data. If you need to download R, you can go to the R project website. You can download a CSV (comma separated values) version of the BtheB R data set. The size of this file is about 3,301 bytes.

drug

did the patient take anti-depressant drugs (No or Yes).

length

the length of the current episode of depression, a factor with levels <6m (less than six months) and >6m (more than six months).

treatment

treatment group, a factor with levels TAU (treatment as usual) and BtheB (Beat the Blues)

bdi.pre

Beck Depression Inventory II before treatment.

bdi.2m

Beck Depression Inventory II after two months.

bdi.4m

Beck Depression Inventory II after four months.

bdi.6m

Details

Longitudinal data from a clinical trial of an interactive, multimedia program known as "Beat the Blues" designed to deliver cognitive behavioural therapy to depressed patients via a computer terminal. Patients with depression recruited in primary care were randomised to either the Beating the Blues program, or to "Treatment as Usual (TAU)".

Note that the data are stored in the wide form, i.e., repeated measurments are represented by additional columns in the data frame.

Examples

  data("BtheB", package = "HSAUR")
  layout(matrix(1:2, nrow = 1))   
  ylim <- range(BtheB[,grep("bdi", names(BtheB))], na.rm = TRUE)
  boxplot(subset(BtheB, treatment == "TAU")[,grep("bdi", names(BtheB))],
          main = "Treated as usual", ylab = "BDI", 
          xlab = "Time (in months)", names = c(0, 2, 4, 6, 8), ylim = ylim)
  boxplot(subset(BtheB, treatment == "BtheB")[,grep("bdi", names(BtheB))], 
          main = "Beat the Blues", ylab = "BDI", xlab = "Time (in months)",
          names = c(0, 2, 4, 6, 8), ylim = ylim)
